Pakistan is anxiously waiting for PTI’s long march as Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan has asked his workers to arrive in Rawalpindi on November 26 (today).

Imran Khan, despite being injured, will also head to Rawalpindi on Saturday (today), where he is all set to lead his party’s long march, and called upon the public to reach the garrison city for the “climax” of his protest movement.

Currently, convoys from across the country led by PTI leaders are making their way to Rawalpindi, making the PTI-long march the biggest protest movement in Pakistan’s history.

Imran Khan has once again demanded fresh elections that he believes will save the country from default and political mayhem. He maintained he would reveal his next strategy during his speech in Rawalpindi on Saturday. The political party will unveil its plan today whether it is holding just a political gathering in Rawalpindi or it will be converted into a sit-in.

Government against PTI long march

On the other hand, Federal Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah has advised former prime minister PTI Chairman Imran Khan to postpone his party’s long march in Rawalpindi.

He said that all intelligence agencies have issued security threats against the party and its chief regarding Nov 26 rally in Rawalpindi. Rana Sanaullah said that extremist parties may carry out terrorist attacks on PTI’s long march.

“I also request to PTI workers to refrain from participating in PTI’s [fitna] march,” he said, adding that Imran Khan can only get election date by engaging with political parties, not through Rawalpindi.

The Islamabad city administration has sealed off the red zone in the federal capital ahead of the PTI’s anti-government protest announced by party head Imran Khan.
