Addressing the participants of the long march via video link, the former premier and PTI Chief said the party workers and supporters to reach Rawalpindi on November between 1-2 pm. “I will meet you there,” he added.
“You [workers and supporters] should try to reach between 1-2 pm. I will myself address and give the next plan of action,” the PTI Chairman added, reiterating that there was no other solution to the country’s issues than fresh and fair elections.
“We can never achieve real freedom while sitting at home,” the former prime minister said, urging the supporters to come out and forced the government to call snap polls.
He also criticized the incumbent government over ‘failed economic policies, saying that the present rules do not have any plan or road map to lift the country out of crises.
“What Pakistan has achieved by regime change in the last seven months,” he asked, adding: “Why they were them on the country.”
Imran Khan further said that the nation cannot afford to remain neutral at the current juncture. “I have no need to risk my life and set out but it was in my mind from childhood that death is better than slavery,” he added
While addressing participants of the Long March Imran Khan claimed that his life was still in danger after the Wazirabad assassination attempt against him. He said he had received ‘death threats’ in the past six months. “I knew that they were making a plan to kill me,” he added.
He said that those who had tried the previous attack against him were still present and so there was a persistent threat to his life. The former premier also expressed disappointment over the journalist community for its alleged lack of action on the killing of senior journalist Arshad Sharif.
“The journalist community should have taken a stand on how cases were registered against him and threats that were given to him,” Imran said. He said the matter was not about him but the entire nation.
Remember that Punjab police have finalized a security plan to welcome the long march of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf which is likely to enter the Rawalpindi zone by Saturday.
According to the details, the security plan finalized for Imran Khan after the gun attack in Wazirabad, more than 10,000 policemen will be deployed for security.
