Imran Khan urges people to reject corrupt politicians on July 25

Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Imran Khan Thursday urged people to change their destiny by voting sincere leaders into power and reject those who were involved in corruption and money laundering during their terms in the government.

Addressing a huge public gathering at Charsadda, Imran asked the people to help him make a new Pakistan :ymapplause:

He claimed that Pakistani currency was devalued owing to transfer of billions of embezzled money that was illegally taken out of the country by corrupt leaders, adding the money transfer had indebted the nation of Rs 27,000 billion.

Imran alleged former prime minister, Nawaz Sharif did huge corruption.

Common people were being punished for petty thefts, while those who made billions of rupees illegally were still at large, he added.

He said that Pakistanis had purchased property worth Rs 900 billion in Dubai from the looted money during the last four years.

He quipped that Shahbaz Sharif who claimed to have turned Lahore into Paris should see the situation in the city after the recent rains, maintaining that all the development was restricted to advertisement campaigns to mislead the people.

Khan said if voted to power, the PTI would steer the country out of crises by eliminating corruption and inviting foreign investment and reducing taxes.

The institutions would be strengthened to achieve the desired goals, he added.

The PTI chief urged the Charsadda dwellers to change their fate by electing sincere and dedicated people on July 25. He said people should unite to defeat corrupt and make new Pakistan for a better future.

He also criticized Asfandyar Wali Khan and his party (ANP) leadership for massive loot and plunder of national wealth during their stint in power from 2008 to 2013.

Similarly, he said JUI (F) chief, Maulana Fazlur Rehman was a ''political magnet,'' who always enjoyed perks and privileges in every government during the last 15 years.

Imran alleged that Maulana Fazlur Rehman was using name of religion for his personal and political gains.

Imran Khan puts money into the country, instead of taking money our for himself :ymapplause:

Imran Khan is changing the health system in Pakistan, building new hospitals (I think he is working on hospital number 4) that provide FREE healthcare for those who without money :ymapplause:

Pakistan ex-PM Nawaz Sharif given 10 year jail term

A Pakistani court has sentenced former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to 10 years in prison on corruption charges related to four luxury London flats.

The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) court handed down the verdict after a series of delays.

Mr Sharif previously filed to delay the ruling while he was in London with his wife, where she is receiving cancer treatment.

The former leader has called the charges politically motivated.

Pakistan election:
Scores killed in bomb attacks on poll rallies

A suicide bomber has killed at least 128 people and injured more than 150 in an attack on a campaign rally in south-western Pakistan, officials say.

A provincial election candidate was among the dead in the town of Mastung.

Earlier, a bomb attack on another election-related gathering killed four people in the northern town of Bannu.

There are fears of further violence ahead of general elections on 25 July.

Meanwhile, former PM Nawaz Sharif was arrested after flying home from the UK.

Sharif and his daughter Maryam were taken into custody by officials from the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) after landing in the northern city of Lahore. They were later put on a chartered plane bound for Pakistan's capital Islamabad.

Reports say that they will be then transferred to a prison.

The three-term PM was ousted last year after a corruption investigation. Last week he was sentenced in absentia to 10 years in prison.

He has accused Pakistan's powerful security establishment of conspiring against him ahead of the elections.

What is known about Friday's attack?

The attack in Mastung was the deadliest such incident in Pakistan in more than a year. There are fears that the death toll will rise further.

Among those killed was Baluchistan provincial assembly candidate Siraj Raisani, his family said. He was a candidate for Balochistan Awami party.

Earlier in the day, a campaign convoy of another candidate was attacked in Bannu.

Akram Khan Durrani, who represents the MMA party, was unhurt, officials say.

Secular parties targeted

These attacks are unexpected as they come amid claims by the army that militants have been cleared from Pakistan's western regions on the Afghan border, which have become a sanctuary for the Taliban.

Before the 2013 elections, militants had issued early warnings, resulting in a muted campaign by targeted secular parties. Those parties lost the poll by wide margins.

Those same parties and groups appear to be targets again.

These latest attacks may also trigger a new set of tensions ahead of an election already marred by controversy.

Significantly, the attacks come in the aftermath of the conviction of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif by an anti-corruption court.

Friday's attacks came just hours before Sharif flew in from the UK to Lahore, and the city is under a lockdown ordered by authorities to prevent his supporters from staging a huge welcome for him.

On Tuesday, a suicide bomber hit a campaign gathering in the northern city of Peshawar, killing 22 people - including a provincial candidate.

The Pakistani Taliban said it had carried out that attack.

Tensions across Pakistan have been rising ahead of Sharif's return to the country.

Thousands of police officers have been deployed and shipping containers have been placed on some main roads in to block supporters from reaching the airport.

On Thursday, Sharif's PML-N party said hundreds of activists in Lahore had been detained ahead of Sharif's return.

Pakistan's general election

    Voters will elect candidates for the 342-seat Pakistan National Assembly

    The main parties are Nawaz Sharif's PML-N, former cricketer Imran Khan's PTI and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari's PPP

    It will mark the second time that one civilian government has handed power to another after serving a full term

    The run-up to the vote has been marred by what observers say is a crackdown on political activists, journalists and critics of the powerful military

    More than 371,000 troops will be deployed to protect the election and ensure it is "free and fair", the army says
