ISLAMABAD: Interior minister Ahsan Iqbal on Monday termed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s speech at the iconic Minar-i-Pakistan part of “2011 script.”
In a tweet, the minister said: “The speech was from 2011 script. A leader who has run a major province for five years still lectures, lectures, & lectures.”
His tweet came in response to PTI leader Dr Arif Alvi’s comment on the party chief’s “historic” speech.
Shortly after the massive rally in Lahore, Dr Arif Alvi took to Twitter, saying: “This was by far the best speech of @ImranKhanPTI I have ever heard in the last 22 years. Came from his heart that bleeds for our beloved country.”
Addressing the mammoth gathering at Minar-i-Pakistan on Sunday evening, the PTI chief unveiled an 11-point agenda to turn the country into Naya Pakistan.
He announced that eradication of corruption, self-reliance, and provision of healthcare and education are top priorities of his party.
