Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) long march has been continuing to move forward as Imran Khan would announce the Rawalpindi touchdown date on Saturday, Asad Umar has said.
PTI’s long march has been continuously moving towards Rawalpindi but at a snail’s pace. Different caravans from different directions have been led by PTI’s senior leadership after Imran Khan’s injury due to an assassination attack on him.
Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Shehbaz Gill, Yasmin Rashid and other local party leaders have been moving the march on GT Road while Asad Umar has been leading the march from Khushab. Similarly, long march caravans have been moving from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa while a caravan from Balochistan will leave tomorrow.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that conspiracies were being hatched against PTI. Addressing participants of the long march in Dina he said that the caravan had travelled through the country and declared that change had arrived.
Asad Umar has said the party’s public gathering in Rawalpindi in the coming days will be the biggest ever in Pakistan’s history. He said that PTI will neither get threatened nor will it bow down. He further added that they won’t hide behind bulletproof glass and will keep standing with their supporters to win their struggle.
Hammad Azhar has called out the government for its alleged failure to contain inflation. He said that the country was on the brink of default and the risk of bankruptcy was growing with each passing day. He further stated in his tweet, “Economic matters cannot be solved by violence and bullets, and the incumbent regime has nothing but these two things.”
On the other side, former interior minister and Awami Muslim League’s Sheikh Rashid has claimed a drone flew over his Lal Haveli Rawalpindi residence. He linked the alleged occurrence to attempts of mischief ahead of the arrival of Imran Khan’s long march in the garrison city.
Rashid said that he was sending the drone’s video to relevant authorities and announced he would welcome the marchers at Rawalpindi’s Committee Chowk.
Under the senior leadership, the PTI’s long march led the people in Dina, Quaidabad, Peshawar and Chakdara.
