PTI to Storm Sialkot, 7 June 2014

Imran Khan tsunami reaches SialkotSialkot will be in the media spotlight as the city is all set to rock with a big big show. Social media and Sialkot itself is abuzz with huge the word of Tsunami coming to hit the City of Eagles Saturday, 7th June.

After two back-to-back successful rallies in Islamabad and Faisalabad, Imran Khan is giving no respite to Federal Govt. Chairman PTI is on the attack, while govt has no words to defend its now obvious involvement in the last year’s general elections. Khan’s party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is protesting against the worst ever rigging of public mandate during 2013 general elections.

PTI NA-110 candidate Usman Dar is at the helm of affairs in organizing a the weekends show. Sialkot, famous for its resilience, sports goods and surgical industry is all set to make an impact on the national politics as Tsunami is

PTI is demanding thumb verification for four National Assembly constituencies. The party complains that election tribunal, bound by law to settle complaints within 120 days, are being politically interfered and have been rendered ineffective and powerless.

Rigged elections will only give us stoned Farzanas!

It is a matter of immense shame for Pakistan and the ruling party of Pakistan Muslim League-N that a young girl was stoned to death in broad day light in the second largest city, Lahore of the country.

Social justice does not exist as rulers are concerned more about roads and flyovers than to provide basic needs like education, health and protection.

Are the rulers of Punjab even aware of plight of the poor at the hands of the police? A raped poor woman will only find more rapist in police uniform if she dared to enter police station to file complain.
Have we all forgotten the self immolation of a helpless girl in front of the police station a couple of weeks ago, or the henious killing of two Sialkot brothers by the local powerfuls in 2011 or even the current case of stoning of Farazana in Lahore? Count can go on forever!

Can this present lot of rulers fool the people for long? Are flyover, roads or metros more important than something as basic as security? Is social security even in the priority list of the sharifs or zardaris at all? Doesnt seem so!

Sadly punctured democracy can only throw some roads or other shiny pojects to show off to create an alibi for so-called win, and nation will continue to suffer at the hands of the likes of MSRs and Sethis!
Rigged elections will only give us stoned Farzanas! Unfortunate but true!
