Therefore, he said, he was sure that the court decision would be against corruption, the biggest ailment of the country.
He said that corruption and the country could not go together any longer. The country’s economy could not stand on its feet if corruption remained unchecked. He said the root cause of the prevailing economic crisis and the deprivations of the people was the loot and plunder of the ruling elite.
He said the financial terrorists moving freely in the country were far more dangerous than the militants hiding in the mountains. The financial terrorists were holding the two hundred million people as hostages and had driven them towards despair and despondence.
The masses, he said, were facing load shedding up to twenty hours per day in the current sizzling heat. The rulers had promised prompt end of load shedding in their election campaign but even after four years of their rule, the energy crisis remained unresolved.
