Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has warned of a 'gory revolution' if any attempt was made to "buy elections".

He claimed that Pakistan People's Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had joined hands against the PTI, but they would fail to thwart the change his party wanted to bring about in the country, reports The Dawn.

Khan criticised the Metro Bus Service inaugurated by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in Lahore on Sunday, saying that Rs 80 billion had been spent on the 'tiny' project just before elections only to woo voters.

The PTI chief said that with such massive funds, half of the students in Pakistan could have been provided free education of high quality.

He said President Asif Ali Zardari had built a 'palace' on 120 canals in Lahore, and questioned the source of the money invested in the project.

He said the elected government was about to complete its term but it had given the people only growing terrorism, inflation, corruption and 'slavery' during its five-year rule.

Lashing out at what he called hereditary and dictatorial trends in political parties, he said the PML-N and the PPP were being run by two dictators and the Sharif brothers and Zardari were grooming their children for politics. (ANI)
