KALAM: Real change can come only when the people are empowered and take their own decisions rather than following dictations, said Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Monday.
Imran was speaking at a rally in Kalam.
The PTI chief – who arrived in the area today – was briefed about the restoration of two dysfunctional power stations.
The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) government had handed over the power stations – which were closed down in the past – to the non-governmental organisation (NGO) Sarhad Rural Support Programme (SRSP).
Imran, who was flanked by K-P Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak and other party members, said the PTI-led government in the province is introducing laws that will bring big changes in the official setup.
Stating that the laws will give more power to the people, the PTI chief said united and empowered people can change the fate of the country.
“Our aim is to give local people the authority and control over the resources,” Imran said, adding that decisions for an area should be taken by the elected leaders of the place rather than from “distant leadership in Peshawar.”
