Imran Khan Announces Long March Date

PTI to begin long march to Islamabad on October 28 from Lahore

Imran Khan announces a long march from Lahore on Friday!

PTI chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday while addressing a press conference in Lahore, announced the long-awaited date for the long march.

The former prime minister said the march will begin from the Liberty Chowk at 11 am and he will lead it himself.

“We will reach Islamabad via GT Road. It is a decisive time. I have been asked to be very irresponsible because I want to stage the protest despite the severity of the situation,” he announced.

“This is our march for Haqeeqi Azaadi and it has no timeframe. We will reach Islamabad from the GT Road and the nation will come from across Pakistan to Islamabad.

“I am predicting this will be the biggest sea of people in the history of the country,” Imran claimed.

Imran Khan said that the long march was launched thrice by the PTI government.

“Cruelty was done against the PTI workers on May 25. We returned home keeping in view the severity of the situation,” he added.

“We held a peaceful protest on May 25 but they inflicted violence on us. And if I had not called it off then the next day there really would’ve been discord and blood in the country,” he said.

“Hence, to save my country and prevent chaos, I called it off,” he added.

“I want to remind the nation that when we came to power in 2018, Pakistan was bankrupt and facing the biggest foreign deficit in history. Our reserves were around $9 billion, our trade deficit was three times more.

“This was the Pakistan we got. And amid this, the biggest crisis in the world’s history — Covid — came for two years. But we came out of that crisis and the world acknowledged our efforts,” he said

He said that threats were hurled at Arshad Sharif for changing his stance and he had gone to Kenya to save his life.
