Qureshi asks nation to support PTI in achieving agenda


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Monday said that Imran Khan had been given the trust of the nation and asked the public to support the party in achieving its goals for the country.

The PTI leader criticised the “unsuccessful” All Parties Conference and said that most of them had rejected a boycott of the parliament.

The All Parties Conference was called by Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman last week which rejected the results of the recently conducted elections but could not reach a consensus on whether to boycott the new assemblies.

“The APC was unsuccessful, [most of] the opposition parties rejected Maulana Fazlur-Rehman’s [suggestion] to boycott the Parliament,” said Qureshi.

“[Everyone] from the world over is congratulating Imran Khan on the victory. Even opponents are praising his [victory] speech. [Imran’s] win is a result of 22 years of political struggle,” he added.

“The stock market has stabilised, the rupee has bounced back,” he pointed out in reference to the positive impact on Pakistan’s economy after Khan’s victory.

The senior PTI leader also said that his party is in a comfortable position to form government at the center, adding that the PTI enjoys the support of PML-Q, and independent candidates are also joining his party daily.

Shah Mehmood Qureshi said PTI is also going to form a government in coalition with its allies in Balochistan. He added that the PTI government will implement the vision of Imran Khan.
