Islamabad, Nov 7 (ANI): Pakistan cricketer turned politician Imran Khan has predicted that his Tehrik-e-Insaf party will win the next elections by a thumping majority.
Last weekend, standing before a sea of supporters in Lahore, he had similar views about his political career.
"As I stood there, watching them, I knew the moment had come. Now nothing can stop us. This is a revolution, a tsunami. We will not just win the next elections - we will sweep them," The Guardian quoted Khan, as saying.
Whether Khan can translate his rhetoric into reality is debated, but there are speculations that the rally has sent shockwaves across Pakistan about an apparent change in the political scenario there.
Over 100,000 people gathered at the historic Lahore Park last weekend, of whom, many were middle-class youths.
"This is the emergence of a new force. The cry for change is resonating across Pakistan," said Ayaz Amir, a parliamentarian from rival Nawaz Sharif's party, who was there. "Young, old, professionals, women - I've never seen such people at a public meeting in Pakistan before."he sight, Amir added, had "scared the living daylights" out of his own party. (ANI)
