MULTAN: PTI Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Friday said that he will announce the date for his party’s much-awaited long to Islamabad between May 25 to May 29. He, however, did not specify a date.
Khan made the announcement while addressing a jalsa in Multan. It was expected that the PTI chairman would share the exact date of the long march today, but he did not do so.
Throughout this month, the PTI chairman had been holding a series of jalsas across the country to mobilise the masses against the alleged “imported” government and to demand a fresh election. The Multan rally was the last one of the series before the party’s planned long march to Islamabad.
At the beginning of his address, the former prime minister thanked the people of Multan for giving him a warm welcome and added that he always prayed to Allah to awaken the conscience of the people of Pakistan so that the nation “does not bow before thieves, robbers, mafia or a superpower.”
