Lahore, Apr 26(ANI): Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that by passing the 18th Amendment, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif made an attempt to clip the judiciary's power.
Addressing a rally against loadshedding and price-hike in Lahore, Khan said he would thwart the government's design against the judiciary.
"If Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari are true patriot, why don't they bring their money from abroad?" The News quoted Khan, as saying.
"Despite the fact that Pakistan has no water, no electricity, people are jobless, factories are lying closed, a hefty amount of Rs. 30 million is being spent on the President of this poor country," he added.
Khan further said that criminals are ruling the country due to which the people were suffering, and insisted that there would be no changes if people cannot fight for their rights.
"Imran called upon the nation to rise up in unison against this diabolical system of oppression and wage a crusade against forces of darkness to steer the country out of this maelstrom crisis," The Nation quoted a PTI statement, as saying. (ANI)
