Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), announced on Saturday that the anti-government long march towards Islamabad would begin in the last week of May.
In a video message posted on social media, the ousted prime minister claimed that Pakistan and its people had been insulted by a foreign-sponsored conspiracy that imposed a corrupt government on the country.
He urged all Pakistanis, PTI supporters and non-PTI supporters alike, to march to Islamabad in the last week of May to protest the blatant insult to his country.
Khan said in his message that preparations for the long march would begin on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr and urged the youth to take to the streets holding PTI flags.
“You will have to tell the world that Pakistan is a living nation […] and once the preparations start, Islamabad will be our next target,” the PTI chairman said.
Khan believes that a sea of people will descend on Islamabad, sending a clear message to the people: “No one from outside can impose a corrupt government on us from now on.” Pakistan’s fate will be decided by Pakistanis.”
Moving on, the ex-prime minister stated that the PTI’s Core Committee has decided to make the call because “60 percent of the federal cabinet members are on bail.”
“The crime minister” is the title given to the prime minister-elect. “His [family’s] cases in the FIA and NAB are worth Rs40 billion,” Khan said.
The fact that such people are in power, according to the PTI chairman, is a “insult” to Pakistan.
It’s worth noting that since his ouster from power earlier this month, Imran Khan has hinted at a massive march to the country’s capital.
In Karachi, Peshawar, and Lahore, his party held three large rallies in which he demanded new elections.
On April 10, former Prime Minister Khan was deposed from power after the National Assembly voted against him on a no-confidence motion, making him the first Pakistani prime minister to be deposed in this manner.
Khan has repeatedly blamed the United States for the no-confidence vote, and he has refused to accept newly elected Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, saying, “There can’t be any greater insult to this country.” The allegations have been denied by the US administration, which is led by Joe Biden.
