State sucking masses' blood, says Imran

LAHORE - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan said on Sunday the state was sucking blood of the people and his party was standing by the masses in these circumstances.
Talking to a private television, Khan said outgoing chief justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry took notice of many issues, but did not take notice of PTI’s complaints about rigging in the May general elections which saddened him.
He alleged that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz came into power with rigging, and not with votes. He said transparent elections were not possible until those involved in casting bogus votes were brought to the book. He said PTI wanted the local bodies elections were conducted in Punjab under supervision of the judiciary to avoid any type of rigging.
Khan said the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government would not open NATO supply routes. He said his party’s protest against drone attacks had entered into a very crucial phase. "We need to decide now either to serve America or live with dignity."
He said he would thank God if the United States stopped assistance to Pakistan.
Referring to his recent meeting with the European envoys, Khan said he asked them whether they would allow them to conduct drone attacks in their countries in return for money.
He said electricity bills had been doubled which was a ‘jagga tax’ imposed by the government. Khan said if Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman had doubt about the results of any constituency, he might point it out and the votes would be verified in that constituency.
