Will halt US drone strikes: Imran Khan

Head of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party Imran Khan has said his party will stop US drone strikes in the country if it comes to power.

PTI will "free the nation from American slavery and US drones would be shot down", the Dawn quoted Khan as saying. It will "not let the US attack Pakistan via drone strikes".

He was speaking at a public rally in Swabi in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province Friday.

Those in power should be embarrassed about the ongoing drone attacks that violate Pakistan's sovereignty and kill innocent people, he said.

Khan declared: "We wont beg, we wont take loans and will generate our own funds."
