Earlier this month, Imran Khan announced the Jail Bharo Movement against the federal government for inflicting custodial torture on his party leaders and delay in announcing fresh elections.
The PTI chief Imran Khan said it is better to start the ‘Jail Bharo’ movement than protest on road. They are fond of getting us jails, we will let them get their wish, he said while addressing the nation via video.
During his televised address, the deposed prime minister said his party could have opted for a nationwide strike, but will choose to fill the prisons instead in light of the fears that the country’s economy might deteriorate further.

“We have two options: Considering what they have been doing, we could have gone for a wheel-jam strike and demonstrations — which is also a way and a democratic one,” Imran Khan said.
“But since the state of the economy is so bad, it’ll worsen. Therefore, I ask all my workers, the Pakistani nation and everyone to prepare for the Jail Bharo movement,” he further added.
According to reports, PTI is deliberating on legal and constitutional options before launching the movement after which party chairman Imran Khan would announce his course of action and party leaders and workers would present themselves for arrest.
