The federal government has filed a contempt of court petition against the former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in the Supreme Court of Pakistan over his long march call towards Islamabad.
According to details, the PDM Government moved Supreme Court against Imran Khan, noting that the former premier and PTI Chief was going to make an announcement of a long march that was a violation of a court order.
The petition was filed by Interior Ministry on behalf of the federal government. In the petition, the federal government asserted that Imran Khan was making announcements to attack Islamabad.
“The PTI Chairman was violating the Supreme Court’s order, which directed him to stage peaceful stage,” the plea stated, urging the apex court to direct Imran Khan to ensure the implementation of its orders related to protests and sit-ins.
Earlier in October, PTI Chairman Imran Khan said that he will not reveal the long march date to anyone as “everything is being recorded”.
Speaking to senior journalists at the Chief Minister’s House in Lahore, the PTI chief said that he had kept his long march plan secret and no one knew the long march date including the party’s vice-chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi.
“I have kept the date to myself… Shah Mehmood Qureshi is my vice-chairman, I did not tell him either”.
Remember that a few days ago while talking to the media Imran Khan said his planned long march is almost ready soon in 3rd week of October going to give a call for the long march towards Islamabad.
