BISHAM: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said that upcoming local body elections would bring about a revolution in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

Addressing a gathering of supporters in Bisham, Khan said “if you have no schools, dispensaries or hospitals, your local elected leaders will address those issues for you.”

“You will not have to run after MNAs or MPAs to get your issues resolved. We will address these problems at your doorsteps through local government representatives,” he said.

Khan said that his party wants to empower people at the village level.

“The biggest advantage of local government is that masses will be empowered and become self-sufficient and you will decide where to spend funds,” Khan added.

“Our 30 million children are out of schools in Pakistan; is this not a crime? Our focus will be on education.”

Khan said that naya Pakistan means new system, where merit is supreme.

Khan also took a swipe at rival parties, saying that some leaders are giving speeches from London and others are raising slogans of Punjab, but nobody is telling which system will change Pakistan.
