KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Vice Chairman, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said today's caravan had come out to save Quaid-e-Azam's Pakistan, Geo News reported on Sunday.

Addressing the grand rally of PTI near Mazar-e-Quaid, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said today Pathan, Siraiki, Punjabi, Sindhi and Urdu speaking have come together. "The broken heart has been fixed."

Karachi reflects the face of Pakistan and the country's prosperity is directly linked to that of Karachi's.

"Every institution is facing a downfall but all this can be turned around. For this you will have to elect an honest leadership," he urged the people.

He said corruption would have to be rooted out to put Pakistan on the track of prosperity.

The entire nation is united for the cause of democracy.

He said today's judiciary had buried the doctrine of necessity for good.

In regard to his statement in Ghotki in which he had said Pakistan's nuclear programme was in danger under President Zardari, Qureshi said there was no physical threat to Pakistan's nuclear assets.

"Actually the programme is under threat by certain policies and the people who make those policies," he claimed, adding 'we will have to protect the nuclear programme from those who barter away the country's security for personal gains'.

He said the President of Pakistan in the past went on record to say that Pakistan was ready to have 'No First Strike Deal' with India. "This was tantamount to undermining the national security of Pakistan," he claimed.

He said the entire national security command was taken aback at the statement of the President of Pakistan. It was in this context that National Command Authority (NCA) was shifted from under the President to the Prime Minister, he added.

Qureshi said PTI wanted friendship with India and the US but not 'slavery'.

He called upon the people to elect a party and leadership that can protect and strengthen Pakistan.
