"One thing should be very clear, security threats or not, we’ve come out to save our country and we have to save this country of ours. Since the creation of our country, it has been destroyed between dictatorships and democracy.
PPP and Nawaz Sharif have taken their turns in the past, neither of them delivered. Now we have to give a chance to Imran Khan, it should be very clear.

Imran Khan is our captain, he has the capability to lead our country and we hope that he will fulfill his promise.

The recent accident was not intentional at all and it was from God. It was a lifter accident which was overloaded. It was the responsibility of government to make sure there was an ambulance present at the venue.

He is a true leader and true patriot, not some layman so he should have been provided a secure lifter to avoid the accident. He does 4-5 rallies every day he must have been exhausted.

If Imran Khan is given a chance and he becomes a prime minister, you will see Pakistan standing next to USA in next 5 years."

Egyptian Prime Minister Hesham Qandil survived an attack on his convoy by a group of armed men late Sunday evening, in an incident that led to one death.

While running away, the vehicle hit a policeman and a citizen but the police managed to bust the vehicle and arrest the five attackers after a pursuit.

Taha Hassan, a street vendor who was passing near the site of the incident, was hit by the vehicle during the incident, and transferred to 6 October Hospital in Dokki where he died.

The interior ministry statement revealed that the armed men were on their way for a fight with some people in another area.
