July 25 elections to change fate of country, says Imran

SARGODHA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said that July 25 election will change the fate of the country.

Imran was addressing a press conference in Sargodha, where he was present as part of his ongoing election campaign.

He said that the PTI would introduce a special package for farmers, maintaining that improvement in their condition could bring prosperity to the country.
“The contest is going to be held in the next three weeks,” the PTI chief said, adding, “This is no common election; it can change the fate of the country.”
He said that the one, who brought a change and strengthened the institutions, could pull the out of quicksand.
“From now onwards, you should be on the streets. We will give our best,” Imran told workers.

The PTI chairman earlier also visited Dargah Sial Sharif, where he requested Sahibzada Qasim Sialvi to support him in the polls ahead.
