Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari is set to lead his party’s “Awami March” to the capital Islamabad today (Tuesday) as the district administration gave the party approval to end the rally at D-chowk.
The march is en-route towards Islamabad after the PPP chairman gave Prime Minister Imran Khan a 24-hour ultimatum to resign and dissolve the assembly. He warned him to be ready to be removed by a no-confidence vote in the event that he does not.
According to a local news outlet, the district administration issued a no-objection certificate to the party to conclude its long march with a rally at D-chowk. The event will take place from 4pm to 8pm today. The party is to be held responsible in the event any damage is caused to state or private property. The news outlet said that Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) leadership will also take part in the march.
While addressing a rally in Lalamusa on Monday, Bilawal gave a 24-hour ultimatum to PM Khan to resign, saying he would be sent via democratic means if he does not. He added that the “umpire’s neutrality would be tested when the no-confidence motion would be presented in the assembly”.
The PPP chairman said that the “selected” had grown fearful and resorted to abusive language against the opposition leaders.
