It is needless to say again and again that the country is in deep crisis. Now it is about time to fix responsibility and move forward, to look for someone to guide us out of the this political, social and economic mess. Can PPP do that and take us somehere safe? No chance they are there for last 40 years and have done nothing except filling their own pockets. Don't let them ruin our lives again. The PML-N is there for about 15-20 odd years. What they have done for our betterment? Nothing. Go to police stations anywhere in Punjab and you have a feel of it. Go to patwaris they tell you the real success story of PML-N.
The every nook and corner of this country cries for someone who can put an end to this ever-growing wave of corruption and corrupt practices. Imran Khan is a determined man who has the courage to challenge the outer foreign forces whose hands our rulers have been playing for last 65 years. On the internal front, he has the potential to deal with looters and plunderers at every level. Why not try him this time around. By winning the world cup and building a hospital, Imran proved that he has leadership qualities. We need a leader and he is the right leader at this moment of time.
Professor Rafiq Akhter is a popular man of the country. He is widely respected for a number of reasons. He is a man of knowledge ranging from religion to international and national affairs. He can do whatever he wants to do because his followers include all sorts of people politicians, journalsists, bureaucrates and even celebrities. He is being visited all the times by the people who have been running this country and looking after its affairs. The famous journalist Haroon Rashid is one of the proud followers of Professor Shahib.
Professor Rafiq and his comrade Haroon Rashid thought they would dictate Imran Khan and his party to whom they should award tickets. They were frusrtarted by a man who had a habit of saying 'BIG NO' as long as he believed that what he was doing was right and correct. Imran Khan, thanks God, is not a blind follower otherwise he would have listened to Professor Sb and Mr Rashid and award ticket to Hameedudin. Professor Rafiq might have conqurered the whole world but he could not force Mr Khan to submit before him. Imran only listened to his workers and the parliamentary boards while awarding tickets. By saying him 'NO' and hundreds of other influential lots, Imran Khan proved that he could take risks and ready to sacrifice even his own 'pir' for the sake of 'NEW PAKISTAN'.
Nobody would stop Prof and his followers from supporting and backing PML-N. It is their choice and they have every right to do so. But doesn't this show that how intellectually bankrupt our 'educated class' has become? Why to blame a common man if a person of the calibre of Professor Rafiq looks for vested interests instead of appreciating the principled stand taken by Imran Khan.
Mirza Zaman was caught red handed in grave violation of his duties. He was appointed SHO to beat the ever-growing wave of crime in Gujar Khan and its surrounding areas. But he damned care for what he was supposed to do. From deep down his heart, he is a politician in guise of police officer. During his last tenure in the same capacity he managed to develop 'excellent relations' with local PML-N stalwarts, including Iftikhar Warsi and others. He was transferred but he came back again to help his freinds/party that is in hot waters after facing internal rift
But celever Mirza Zaman misjudged the whole situation. He thought he would get away with it ( how the people would know his political activities). But the poor Mirza didn't know he was being shadowed by the workers of other parties, namely, PTI AND PPP. It is said that the local authorities was shown a video in which Mirza could be seen convassing for Warsi and Ikhlas. The PTI and PPP were up in arms against the man who was abusing his position to get his favourites elected from Gujar Khan. It was widely believed that Mirza was being utilized by PML-N to threaten people (so that they vote for PML-N)
Once recorded on video the local administration had no option than to remove him from a key post. The local media reported that Mirza was so open in supporting PML-N that everybody knew about it. He could be seen getting in and out of PML-N leaders' luxury vehicles. He brokered a deal between the PML-N and an influential person of Gujar Khan. Yesterday he had been asked to report back to police line and a new SHO had been ordered to take charge. The authorities was very lenient in dealing with a man who openly violated terms of his duties, said a journalist.' Had he been suspended or dismissed, this would have given a right message to others. But still its a humiliation.
The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) workers and supporters were rejoiced to see their leader, Imran Khan, amongst them on Monday.
Riding a high-roof bulletproof vehicle and leading a convoy of 100 vehicles, Imran Khan arrived at the city’s downtown area for the first time since he announced his candidacy for the May 11 from there earlier this month.
As he traveled on the Benazir Bhutto Road, PTI workers showered rose petals on his vehicle, chanting slogans for his electoral success in this constituency and also for his premiership.
In his first public appearance in the garrison city for elections, the PTI chief started the campaign with a bang.
However, the inauguration of the party office at Benazir Bhutto Road near Chandni Chowk Flyover turned out to be mismanagement affair.
The pushing and shoving of PTI workers among themselves forced Imran Khan to leave the premises moments after formally opening the party office.
The local PTI leaders had created unruly scenes while attempting to get a picture with the PTI chief.
During the commotion, some workers also tumbled upon the electronic media’s cameras and mikes. However, no person was injured in the incident.
After the formal inauguration of his election office in NA-56, the PTI chief visited the city and it took three hours to reach his rally at the Lal Haveli of Sheikh Rashid Ahmed via the Kohati Bazaar.
On his way to the Raja Bazaar, the PTI chief received warm welcome from the people but the city witnessed a huge traffic jam due to his rally.
He also visited Banni Chowk, Iqbal Road and Sadiqabad before going to Bani Galla via Islamabad Expressway.
The PTI leaders claimed that the gathering was far greater than what the PTI leaders had expected. “We had not expected such a large number of people in the rally of Imran Khan in a short notice of just one day,” said Raja Tariq Kiani, PTI leader in Rawalpindi, while talking to Dawn.
He said the PTI chief had informed the party that he would visit the city on Monday, and the party workers and supporters then arrived in large numbers. “It is like the referendum before the election; Imran will win the seats from the district as well as from across the country,” he added.
Apart from the local leaders, supporters of PTI were also seen on the main roads, attempting to get a glimpse of Imran Khan.
“PTI is gaining popularity because of the wrong policies of the ruling parties, the Zardari led PPP and the Nawaz led PML-N,” said Mohammad Akram, a shopkeeper at Benazir Bhutto Road.
Farhan Ahmed, a resident of Banni Chowk, said he was impressed by the big rally. However, he said the same crowd would also be witnessed upon the arrival of PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif.
“The rallies and public meeting was always arranged, and usually people are brought to these functions. You cannot predict the results just by seeing the public in meetings,” he said.
The local police provided one vehicle with a mobile phone jammer and two sections of Elite to the PTI chief and due to these inadequate security arrangements, the party leaders advised Imran Khan not to expose himself.
However, on the request of the youngsters, Imran Khan and his companion Sheikh Rashid came out of his bulletproof vehicle to wave to the supporters.
“PTI requested the local administration for the security in the garrison city on Monday, and the local police had been asked to provide foolproof security,” said a senior City District Government Rawalpindi (CDGR) official while talking to Dawn.
When asked whether PTI had the permission for the rally, he said the PTI sought security but had not asked for the permission.
“The permission is necessary for public meetings, not for a rally,” he added.
The family of murdered takeaway driver Yasser Abbas today told how they were ‘heartbroken’ at his killing, as it emerged he was due within days to have become a father for the second time.
The 28-year-old was set upon by three men wielding weapons in a quiet cul-sac in Alumwell on Saturday.
Police were today launching a murder probe after Mr Abbas, of Raleigh Street, Birchills, died in hospital.
Today his uncle Tariq Hussain, aged 45, revealed his nephew’s wife Shabam could give birth in the next few days.
He said Mr Abbas’s father Firat Khan, mother Shanaz Khan and his three sisters were ‘completely shattered’.
He said: “We cannot believe what has happened.
“His father, mother and sisters are completely shattered. They haven’t stopped crying since he passed away.
“We can’t understand why anybody would do this. He was a lovely lad and absolutely loved by everyone. No human being in this world deserves to be killed like he was. I can’t put into words how this is affecting the family.”
The former Alumwell Comprehensive School pupil had a four-year-old son, Daniel, and had started working as a takeaway delivery driver.
Police believe Mr Abbas and a colleague were delivering a bogus takeaway order before being ambushed in Madison Avenue by thugs in the early hours.
Mr Hussain added: “Yasser loved his son Daniel so much.You always saw the two of them together.
“He was looking forward to the birth of his new baby and was very excited about it. He loved his family. His wife is due to give birth any day and she is heartbroken.
“Daniel is asking where is Daddy is and now there is a baby who will never meet his father.
“It doesn’t make any sense. We can’t believe this has happened. As a family we are torn apart.”
More than 1,000 people attended Birchills Mosque and community centre last night as news of Mr Abbas’s death filtered through.
Mr Hussain said: “I have never seen the community hall so busy.”
