LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Friday vowed to sweep to power in upcoming elections, promising radical change for the poor at a campaign rally in NA-131 constituency.
Imran said that if elected he would build schools and “world class hospitals” across the country, while farmers would get cheap loans.
The PTI chief also hit out at former prime minster Nawaz Sharif, who has been sentenced to 11-years in prison over his family’s purchase of luxury apartments in London, saying Nawaz’s arrest will herald the dawn of a new Pakistan.
Nawaz and his daughter Maryam left for Lahore from London, where they were tending to the veteran politician’s wife Kulsoom Nawaz, who is undergoing cancer treatment.
