Founded PTI for establishment of Islamic welfare state 24 years ago: PM Imran Khan
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he had founded the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for the establishment of an Islamic welfare state.
In a series of tweets on the Foundation Day of the PTI, he said: “24 years ago today, PTI embarked on our mission of achieving our Quaid Jinnah's vision for Pakistan as a modern Islamic welfare state. To achieve this we had to achieve the following:
- Rule of Law where all are equal before the law & the powerful are brought under the law.
- Break the stranglehold of the elite capture of our state and of our nation's resources; and redistribute these resources more equitably in order to lift our poor out of poverty. Ours has been a long & arduous struggle - more than any other political party.
“Today I want to remember our founding members who are not with us anymore – Naeemul Haq, Ahsan Rasheed and Saloni Bokhari.”
Earlier, Pakistani health professionals are on the frontline in the fight against COVID19 across the world.
In a tweet on Saturday, the prime minister said that they (overseas doctors) also want to help us combat COVID-19 in Pakistan.
“We have launched @YaranWatan initiative for our overseas health professionals who can now register to volunteer their services,” he added.
Earlier in a message, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that entire humanity around the globe is facing devastating impacts of coronavirus and all major global powers seem to be toothless before this pandemic.
He urged the nation to take special care of poor needy people in these testing times by exercising complete unity and sacrifice.
Prime Minister Imran Khan prayed to Allah Almighty to steer the humanity out of prevailing coronavirus pandemic and also help Pakistan in emerging victorious in common fight against Covid-19.
