PESHAWAR: PTI Chairman Imran Khan plans to carry on with the party’s ‘Azadi March’ despite the government’s decision from earlier today to stop the long march towards Islamabad. Khan says he will lead the biggest procession in Pakistan’s history tomorrow.
He is addressing a press conference in Peshawar. The PTI chairman’s speech comes after a countrywide police crackdown against members and leaders of the PTI. A policeman also lost his life in one of the raids after which the govt said it would not allow the PTI to have its long march scheduled for tomorrow (May 25).
The PTI chairman has yet to address criticism against his party over the death of a constable during a raid.
He instead focused on critiscm against the PML-N government, saying he has been seeing the Sharif family adopting the same tactics as military dictators since 1985.
“They remember democracy as soon as they leave power,” he said, asking how many times these parties have taken to the streets against the government in the 3.5 years the PTI was in power.
