Last week on Sunday, Khan urged the people of the nation to unite as one.

He vowed to make Sindhis, Mohajirs, Baloch, Pakhtuns, and Punjabis one nation.

Khan asked the participants of the rally to promise him never to tolerate oppression and pledged to eliminate the politics of extortion and target killings and said that we will make the police nonpolitical.

He said his protest campaign would only end when Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resigns from office.

Khan said all elections except the 1970s were rigged but not a single person had ever been held accountable.

He warned that a corrupt government has no future and promised to bring rule of law in the country.

To the people of Sindh, his message was that false promises were made in the name of Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, adding, “Sindhi brothers be ready Imran Khan is coming to you”.

The PTI chief vowed to rid the country of dynastic politics and introduce a system based on merit.

On Friday, Khan burnt his electricity bill while giving his speech at a sit-in at D-Chowk in Pakistan’s federal capital Islamabad as part of a civil disobedience movement to oust Prime Minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.

Numerous PTI workers also burnt their electricity bills at the sit-in.

Khan said that Pakistan’s Rs200 billion stashed away in Swiss banks will be brought back, adding that he will also reopen cases against the corrupt elements who secured their release from accountability courts.
