Elections only solution to national crises: CM.

PESHAWAR -- Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan on Saturday said the only way to steer the country out of political and economic crises was to immediately hold free and fair general elections in the 'larger' interest of the people.

'Economy cannot prosper as long as the conglomerate of political goons stays in power that will further increase the misery of the people due to high inflation,' Mr Mahmood said in a statement issued here.

The chief minister said that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif-led corrupt rulers were looting the taxpayers' money and weakening the accountability mechanism.

He said Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan would free the country freed from the 'clutches of imported rulers', who had brought the national economy to the brink of collapse.

Mahmood says PTI's march is for nation's real freedom

Mr Mahmood said that the parties ruling the centre had harmed national interest for own gains and benefits.

He said that the PTI's ongoing Azadi March against the federal government was in full swing.

The chief minister said that on the call of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman Imran Khan, the people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would join the march on Islamabad in large numbers for the ouster of PM Shehbaz Sharif's government.

'Our long march is a battle for the real independence of the country and a bright future for the youth,' he said.

Mr Mahmood said that the federal government was following the instructions of its foreign masters, while the decisions of the country were being made by an irrelevant person, a fugitive, from London that was unacceptable to the nation.
