PTI to kickstart long march from Lahore on October 28

 PTI's Long march towards Islamabad will start from Liberty Chowk Lahore on Friday led by Imran Khan

Finally, PTI Chairman Imran Khan has announced the date of his much awaited long march towards Islamabad. PTI will kick start the march from Liberty Chowk Lahore on Friday, October 28. Imran Khan will lead the long march for “Haqiqi Azadi” that will start at 11 am. PTI chairman has announced the date of long march in a press conference in Lahore.

The main purpose of the long march is to force the federal government to announce fresh elections in the country immediately. Imran Khan also wants to delay the appointment of new army chief till the next elections.  

The PTI chairman said that “this is our march for Haqiqi Azadi 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. This is something way beyond politics, it is a war for freedom from these thieves that have been imposed over us. Our struggle (jihad) would decide where the country will go.”

Elaborating on the demands of the march, the former premier said that he only wanted one thing: “The decision of who will head the country belongs to the public.”

“We want that the people make the decision. Today, I am appealing to the entire nation that you will have to decide do we want to go on this way of becoming a free country or serve these thieves.”

In response to a question, he said that the protest would be peaceful. “We are not going to break the law or go into the Red Zone. Whatever will happen in Islamabad, it will be according to what the courts have permitted us.

At the outset of the press conference, the PTI chief said he had planned the march earlier. “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.
