PTI chief vows to press movement against corruption

Lahore, July 6 (ANI): Stating that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in coming days will define history in the country, party chief Imran Khan has vowed to press ahead with its movement against corruption in the country after Eid.

Addressing party workers at an iftar in Lahore yesterday, Imran said they will lead a movement against corruption in the country.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has long been claiming that corruption was the main issue for the country since ages.

Taking pot shots at Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who is currently in London recuperating from a heart surgery, Imran said, "Leadership is missing in Pakistan."

He added that Sharif was scared of his own people, the reason why his vacations abroad.

"Someone who has no credibility can't lead his own people," he said.

Imran also took a swipe at Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party (PkMAP) chief Mahmood Khan Achakzai for his recent remark of calling Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, a part of Afghanistan. (ANI)
