Starting his speech PTI chief thanked people of Lahore for coming in big numbers. “People of Lahore I want to thank you all from the core of my heart.”

Speaking about a 11-point agenda to make a “naya” (new) Pakistan, he said, “Ask yourself, why was this country made? Why, on this ground in 1940, did Quaid-e-Azam declare that we want Pakistan?”
Pakistan, today, is contrary to Quaid and Allama Iqbal’s vision, he lamented.
“The Pakistan that Quaid-e-Azam wanted would afford equal rights to all citizens including the minorities, where the Hindu community, Sikhs, and Christians would be equal citizens. This country was to be formed on the model of Madina, where the basis of law was justice,” Imran said.
