In Karachi, the live screening of Jalsa will be shown at the sea view and everyone has been requested to join. In Sukkur, a live screening will be shown at the Sukkur press club at Dolphin chowk. Hyderabad will also witness a live screening at the press club.
Similarly, many locations have been announced in South Punjab where the live screenings will be shown. Chairman Imran Khan’s address will be telecast live from Parade Ground Islamabad in the South Punjab districts of Muzaffargarh, Multan, Bahawalnagar, Layyah, Lodhran and D Khan.
According to PTI’s official sources, former PM Khan is going to hold a rally from Rawalpindi at 5 pm today and then move to Parade Ground Islamabad.
The former premier who was ousted from power through a no-confidence motion in April this year said that the incumbent government, in a short span of time, increased the price of petrol by Rs99 and diesel by Rs133 per liter instead of buying “cheaper oil from Russia”.
Repeating his allegations that he was removed from power through a US-backed conspiracy, the PTI chief alleged that Pakistan “suffered the most” because of the regime change and cited the current economic condition as proof.
According to the PTI chief, the current state of the national economy could lead Pakistan towards a national security crisis just like Sri Lanka. He added that economic security was also just as important as “military security”, insisting that the ‘neutrals’ – a euphemism he uses for the establishment – would also suffer if the economy collapsed.
Earlier, the former premier issued a statement asking his supporters to join PTI’s protest against inflation today. He expressed optimism that it would be a historic gathering at the Parade Ground.
