Nawaz Sharif Islamabad, Feb 25 (IANS) Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan Saturday vowed to bring the people out of the grip of the landlords and described the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) [PML-N] as “mafias”.

Addressing a rally in Umerkot district of Sindh province, the cricketer-turned-politician said the days of the landlords, “who make people their slaves”, were numbered, Geo News reported.

Khan said the cruel system, where “the poor man is sent to jail while the one who loots the country becomes president”, would be put to an end by his party.

He targetted PPP and PML-N when he said that Zardari and Nawaz leagues were not political parties but “mafias”.

Khan said both President Asif Ali Zardari and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif were on the same page in looting the nation’s money.

He said his party would bring a new system of justice based on local government.
