    Local governments will liberate people of K-P
    : Imran Khan

    Published: May 5, 2015


    PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Tuesday that the local government system will liberate the people of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P), as they will be able to take decisions for themselves.

    “People will be able to build local infrastructure with the help of the leaders they elect,” said Imran while addressing a rally in Besham town of K-P on Tuesday.

    He said funds meant for the masses will go to their local representatives, whereas MPAs and MNAs will only take part in the legislation process.

    “The focus will be on education, and the youth will be given easy loans,” said the PTI chief.

    Giving an example of democracies in the West, Imran said, “No one runs after elected representatives to get their work done; they themselves are empowered.”

    He said European democracies have proper political systems in place. “Pakistan lags behind because we have a different justice systems for the rich and the poor,” Imran said.

    “We will change the status quo once we gain a sweeping victory in the local body elections.”
