Status quo a big hurdle in bringing change, says Imran Khan


SARGODHA: The status quo in a country’s politics is very powerful and can be a big hurdle at times in bringing change, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said on Monday.

Addressing a rally organised as part of the nationwide election campaign, he said the 2018 general elections on July 25 will change the fate of the country.

Imran said that people in Sindh, especially cultivators, are in a dire condition, adding that farmers have suffered immensely during the past five years.

He said that the PTI would introduce a special package for farmers and the improvement in the condition of farmers can bring happiness in the country.

On the subject of distribution of party tickets, Imran said that it is not possible to give tickets to everyone, and he has ensured rightful division of tickets.

The PTI chairman earlier also visited Dargah Sial Sharif, where he requested custodian of the shrine Sahibzada Qasim Siyalwi to support him in the election ahead.

In Sargodha, Imran was welcomed by PTI candidates Amir Sultan Cheema (NA-91) and Faisal Javed Ghumman (PP-79).


The PTI has released an election campaign travel log of Imran Khan. According to the log, the PTI chairman will campaign in 25 cities of Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) and Sindh in the next 21 days.

Imran will spend 11 days addressing public rallies in 14 different cities of Punjab, according to the travel log.

After Punjab, the PTI chairman will take to KP, where he will campaign for five days in eight different cities. Of the five days scheduled for Sindh, Imran will spend three days in Karachi and two in the interior Sindh.

The PTI chairman’s campaign for the general election will conclude with a “massive rally” scheduled in Islamabad for July 23.

According to the party’s current travel plans, the PTI chairman will not be visiting Balochistan or the tribal areas in KP formerly known as Federal Administrated Tribal Areas (FATA).
