PTI celebrates July 25 as ‘thanksgiving day’


ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Thursday observed the first anniversary of July 25 general election as ‘Youm-e-Tashakur’ [thanksgiving day] to commemorate the party’s victory.

In series of tweets, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the aspirations of the general public and the political struggle of 23 years by PM Imran Khan bore fruit in the general elections.

 She said the people gave the mandate to PM Imran, and those who plundered the nation’s wealth were being held accountable. “Today is the day of triumph […] the day of defeat for those who plundered the public money.”

She said those who used the politics for loot and plunder were being brought to justice and the nation has rejected their dynastic politics.

Firdous said this was the day when the people rejected the dynastic politics and thrown out those from the system who used politics for financial gains.

She regretted over what she claimed that two political parties had badly exploited the masses by playing the game of taking power in turns.
