“More than to reach out to PTI workers I was here to offer Karachiites at large an opportunity to be the part of the change we want to bring about in Pakistan. The choice is theirs”, PTI leader said in a press talk at the Quaid-e-Azam International Airport here.

He urged the people to elect PTI to government for their better future while advising them not to vote for the political parties with militant elements under their wings.

In order to salvage the financial hub of Pakistan from the jagged jaws of organized violent crime some major reforms would need to be made, adding he said it should start with the disbanding of political parties’ militant wings on war footings.

He explained that the parties with militant wings would never reform the police department as to them it would be like shooting in their own foot.

Owing to the lawlessness, rampant in the largest city of Pakistan, the future of its youth was growing dimmer and dimmer, Khan said sadly.

“Just one business seems to be booming in Karachi, which is kidnapping for ransom”, said he.

Karachi had been suffering from unrest for the past 10 years, particularly over the last 5 years, it needed to end before it was too late, Khan added.

Replying to a question, he said Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) was PTI’s main rival in Karachi and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the rest of the Sindh province.

Commenting on his not addressing a single election gathering in Karachi, he said, unfortunately the law & order situation prevailing in the city was stopping them from holding election rallies here.

“God forbid if something untoward comes to pass during a gathering it will mar our campaign around Pakistan”, said he.

To a question, as to how many seats would PTI win in Karachi, Imran said: “I am afraid I cannot give you a figure but hopefully we will try to take our best shot.”

Talking around a question, he refrained from dropping any clues about PTI’s post-vote allies.
