Tahirul Qadri noted as to how it is possible to exterminate corruption from the country if the basis of both the government and the opposition, is corruption.

"We do not want to become the part of this corrupt system; hence, we will organize sit-ins across the country in every city," he asserted adding he will put forward a new system to bring about change in the country after the elections are held.

"I will present a new system after the terrible collapse of this system. And, those who are raising the slogan of change, will be left all perplexed after the elections," he said.

Pervez Musharraf, currently, nobody else is disqualified in the country.

"Our, war against the corruption will continue," he added

He said election campaign was limited to just one province only, how could these polls be declared free and fair.
