PTI Chairman Imran Khan cancelled the protests by his supporters and directed party members to concentrate on the “long march” toward Islamabad, which would be the biggest protest movement in the country.
On Friday, Imran stated that he did not want the party workers to encounter any difficulties in a video message that was made public after he was disqualified by the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in the Toshakhana case.
PTI supporters protested on the streets of many cities and towns across the nation shortly after the ECP decision. The PTI workers and the police also clashed in Islamabad.
He urged PTI supporters to stop their demonstrations, disperse, and wait for his announcement of the long march.
The PTI chairman urged his supporters, “You are already going through a difficult time, and I don’t want you to stay in turmoil.”
Imran slammed the ruling coalition for seeking to “suppress” him in his pre-recorded statement. In addition, he claimed that he had anticipated the outcome and accused the chief election commissioner Sikandar Sultan Raja of prejudice.
PTI has decided to challenge the decision of the ECP in the Toshakhana reference.
Earlier, PTI senior leader Fawad Chaudhry said that the disqualification was announced for the current seat and it will not affect Imran Khan’s other seats.
Reacting strongly to the party chairman’s disqualification, Fawad Chaudhry slammed the ECP. He said that the attitude of ECP had been the worst and they had never pinned any hopes on it.
Fawad also said that it was a shameful decision as they have shamed the 220-million-strong-nation. He also termed the decision as an assault on the institutions of Pakistan
