The PTI will start the long march to Islamabad in the last week of May, former premier Imran Khan announced on Saturday.
“We will make this appeal to all Pakistanis, not just those who support the PTI because Pakistan has been insulted after the country’s most corrupt people were imposed upon us by a foreign power,” Khan said in a video message.
In his statement issued today, the former Prime Minister said that preparations for the long march would commence on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr and urged the youth to take to the streets with the PTI flags in their hands.
“You must tell the world that Pakistan is a living nation…and once the preparations start, our next target will be Islamabad,” Imran Khan said.
Khan stated that he thought a sea of people would storm Islamabad and give a clear message to the people: From now on, nobody from abroad can force a corrupt government on us. The people of Pakistan will determine what happens to Pakistan.”
Moving on, the former Prime Minister stated that the PTI Core Committee decided to give the call as “60% of the people in the federal cabinet are on bail”.
“The person who became Prime Minister is referred to as the Minister of Crime. His [family] has 40 billion Rs40 outstanding cases in the FIA and NAB,’ said Khan.
The chairman of PTI reiterated that these persons being in power was an “insult” to Pakistan.
