Iftikhar said that we need to go beyond racism, cultural and traditional limitations .He said that bullets never bring change. He expressed his grief over the distorted distribution of the local people into various sects, political groups. He said that unfortunately since 200 till up till now, masses have not used their votes as “weapons” to elect the right political body.
While talking about bringing the change he said that Imran Khan lacks to devise proper planning to win the hearts and minds of people. Without talking about the plans which could resolve the issues, he cannot get votes.
