In a statement issued from the party’s central secretariat on Wednesday, he said that people of the country are facing the dark night of oppression, loot, unemployment and hunger. They were being forced to commit suicide because of poverty and deprivation.
In the latest incidents, an educated man, Raja Khan, had to opt the extreme step of self-immolation because he was jobless. Another retired Railways employee, Mahmood Khan, died of heart attack because he had to wait throughout the cold night for his pension outside the bank. The rulers had lost their right to rule and there was no reason for them to continue even for one day now.
“The time has come that the rulers should be held accountable for their unjust and cruel policies. It was not the first time when the poor had to commit suicide. Imran Khan said that the corrupt ruling mafia had pushed the country towards the Stone Age. There was no electricity, no fertilizers, no petrol, no diesel and no gas available, which had made life miserable for the common man.
He said that PTI would initiate people-friendly policies when it would come into power and take steps to eliminate forces representing coercion, exploitation and exploitation.
