Imranís tsunami sweeps Karachi

The Nation, Pakistan

December 25, 2011

KARACHI - Imran Khanís tsunami after conquering Lahore swept through Karachi on Sunday, where tens of thousands of people assembled at the call of the PTI leader who unfolded his future plans to cleanse the country from rampant corruption and to make it an Islamic social welfare state.

Addressing the mammoth PTI flag-waving near mausoleum of Father of the Nation Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Imran Khan, in his 4-minute speech, decaled that if voted into power he would end the corruption in 90 days and give new policies to provide justice and social empowerment to the people.

The PTI had organised public gathering at Bagh-e-Jinnah, adjacent of Quaid-e-Azamís mausoleum on the day of Father of the Nationís birth anniversary.

Imran Khan termed the gathering more successful than the one PTI had organised in Lahore. Thousands of charged and emotional party workers were chanting slogans of 'Prime Minister Imran Khaní and hoisted the party flags to express their sentiments. Imran Khan promised the nation on Quaid-i-Azamís birth anniversary that he will fulfil the dream of the Founder of the Nation, saying 'I will do what Quaid-i-Azam wanted to do and he wanted to make Pakistan a prosperous stateí. Imran Khan said: "I promise on Quaid-i-Azamís birth anniversary that I will do what the Quaid-e-Azam wanted to do."

Imran, in his speech punctuated with loud slogans of the cheering crowd and national songs, said he would introduce a strong justice system in Pakistan under which free justice would be provided to the poor. "Quaid-e-Azam never wanted you to bow before anyone, I will ensure that you donít have to bow before anyone."

The PTI Chief said he would bring a team that will be selected on merit to transform Pakistan into a welfare state. He said this team would function under Jehangir Tareen to present economic policies, labour policies, tax reforms, education policies as well as foreign policies before the nation. There will be a policy paper on all issues, he added.

"During Tehreek-e-Insaf rule a civil system will be introduced which will ensure that even Imran Khanís car is stopped for overspeeding." He said Tehreek-e-Insaf would root out corruption and rectify the system.

Imran said a Chinese company wanted to bring $19 billion investment to Pakistan but could not do so due to the worst law and order situation in Karachi. "You donít need a rocket science in Pakistan, just bring a team of honest leaders that undertakes its own accountability," he asserted.

He promised that the major corruption will be eliminated within 90 days of coming into power. Pakistan suffers a loss of 300 crores per day, he regretted.

Imran Khan said that he wanted to play a match with President Zardari but unfortunately he was retired hurt. "The days of Zardariís rule are numbered, so do not worry."

Speaking about Balochistan, he said: "We will seek forgiveness from Balochistan people and remove their grievances by developing the deprived province."

Announcing about PTIís next public meeting, he said 'the next stop for the tsunami will be Quetta on March 23í.

Imran apologised to Baloch people and said the he will provide them their rights.

Imran Khan took the podium with a verse from the Qurían and said "God we only ask help from you."

He said "People said the rally will be a flop. Are there Sindhis, Pathans, Punjabis, Mianwalis here at this rally? We have Hindus, Parsis and Christians. Merry Christmas. Today was Quaid-e-Azamís birthday. I wonít say anything bad about any political party. But Mian Sahib said letís play a 10-over match. Mian Sahib, hurry, before you are unable to get a team. Today, I want to welcome Javed Hashmi. You are a brave man. I also want to congratulate Shah Mahmood Qureshi. Another wicket is going to fall. Sardar Assef Ali also wants to join Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf."

Imran said "People ask me whatís your roadmap. Iím going to give you a roadmap. When I went to Britain at the age of 18 i was surprised to observe that the poor are fed. There was no difference in hospitals between the rich and poor. The first Islamic welfare state was Khilafat-e-Rashida."

He said "Even animals have rights in the West. A police officer was sent to prison for torturing a police dog. We will provide justice in villages. We promise that the government will provide a lawyer for those who canít afford it. There are more talented players than myself. There are more intelligent people than myself. People said I coudnít be the best bowler because you arenít talented. I wanted to make a hospital so that people could go there and get treated for free. They said you canít make the hospital. I wanted to make a university, they said you canít do it. Today that university is offering degrees. They said forget it, you donít know politics. They made fun of me and my colleagues. But I didnít let that spoil my dreams of a better Pakistan. We want one educational system in Pakistan. God has always fulfilled my dreams. And He will also fulfil this one too. How will we do this? I promise I will give you a great team. Did I choose a good cricket team for the World Cup. That team will also be on merit."

"Pakistan will not need to beg for aid. Selection in the Civil Service will be on merit. Police officials will also be chosen on merit. We will bring a better labour policy. PTI will stand along with the labourers. All policies will be constituted for the lower 50 per cent of the people. There is the Pakistani Punjab and Indian Punjab. Indian Punjab produces 3 times as much yield as the Pakistani Punjab. In India, they facilitate their farmers free or at least cheap electricity. Our biggest asset is our expatriates, who donít want to come to Pakistan because of the law and order situation in the country. Their lives are threatened. We had a rich expat from Russia. He stayed at a hotel here but was kidnapped."

Imran said "Average income of Singapore has increased. Muhathir Muhammad also increased the average income of his nation. No one will be given a ticket in this party till they disclose their assets so that we know how theyíve amassed their wealth. Curbing corruption is very easy, providing education is more difficult. Pakistan suffers a loss of Rs 300 billion daily. We will computerise the government with e-government because you canít bribe a computer.

Tens of thousands of people, including women and children, converged in Karachi on Sunday for Imran Khanís massive rally seeking a 'changeí in the country, with the organisers dubbing it as a 'tsunamií.

All roads leading to the Quaid-e-Azam park, the venue of the rally adjacent to the mausoleum of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, were jammed with buses, trucks, cars, motorcycles and pedestrians who were eager to reach the place.

Mindful of the response to Imranís call for Karachiites to attend the rally in large numbers and show their support for a change in the country and against corruption, the organisers had set up giant video screens outside the park for people who could not find a place inside.

A sea of people, including women, children and even the physically challenged, stood shoulder-to-shoulder braving the afternoon heat and several hours into the night as they listened to Tehreek-e-Insaf leadersí speeches.

The Quaid-e-Azam Park was swamped by people carrying the red and green PTI flags and wearing party caps. People had started converging at the venue since morning, hours before the rally was to begin.

"We are here because of Imran Khan. We believe he can make a better Pakistan and bring changes," shouted Maleeha, a hijab-clad woman who had come with her fiance to the rally.

Zainab, another young woman dressed in jeans and T-shirt, said many people now know that Imran Khan was the last hope for Pakistan. "We all believe only he can turn around this country and rid it of corruption and extremism. He can bring about better governance."

The presence of large number of women and youth at the rally was a big triumph for the organisers who had set up separate enclosures for the women, families and youth.

Shahdab Kabir, a disabled person who came to the rally with his brother on a wheelchair, said he came to show Imran that the people of Karachi supported him and his manifesto. "It is not only time for a change in Pakistan but also in Karachi," he said.

The organisers, with the assistance of local administration, had set up special walkthrough security gates and body scanned each and every participant before they entered the rally venue.

Asif Khan, a party worker, added that "we believe in Imran Khan and the fact that a senior (PPP) politician like Javed Hashmi has now joined us shows people believe in Imran and want change in the next elections."

Karachi for the last two decades has been the stronghold of the MQM, the only party in the last two decades to manage massive rallies in the city.

Over 100,000 people rallied in support of cricket hero-turned-politician in Karachi on Sunday.
