Former Prime Minister and current Chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Imran Khan, led his party’s Azadi Long March to Liberty Chowk from his home in Zaman Park.
The leader of the PTI is leading a march toward Islamabad to put pressure on the current administration to call snap elections.
The container features images of Imran Khan and other top party officials, including Shah Mahmood Qureshi, Asad Umar, Fawad Chaudhry, Ali Zaidi, Shafqat Mahmood, Faisal Javed Khan, Sheikh Rasheed, Mian Mahmood ur Rasheed, Musarat Cheema, and others.
Fighting for Haqiqi Azadi, Imran Khan said.
The former prime minister and current PTI leader Imran Khan spoke to the crowd before they set off towards Islamabad, declaring that “the time has arrived to begin the road to haqiqi Azadi” (real freedom).
The former prime minister said that the marchers’ real goal was to end slavery all over the country, not any of their other personal or political goals.
According to him, Washington, DC is the wrong place to make policy decisions regarding Pakistan. Pakistan shouldn’t be ordered to participate in foreign wars.
Due to the country’s corrupt leadership, the country’s citizens are suffering from unprecedented levels of inflation. According to Imran Khan, calls for free and fair elections in Pakistan are not a given.
People who don’t like the current government have gathered at Lahore’s famous chowk to get ready for the march that will last all day.
No Objection Certificate Denied by Islamabad Government
Pakistan Tehreek Insaf asked the Islamabad Administration for a “no-objection certificate” so that they could hold a party rally in the nation’s capital on Friday.
The district administration said in a letter that PTI had broken the NOC given to it on May 25 and requested written assurances from the party.
Timetable for a Protracted March
Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided on the full route for the long march.
After Friday prayers, the long march will officially begin at Liberty Chowk in Lahore.
On Friday night, PTI marchers will have made it from Liberty Chowk to the Shahdara Interchange, their initial destination.
After Imran Khan’s address, PTI supporters will spend the night in Shahdara.
The long trek to Gujranwala will continue on Saturday.
When the long march finally makes it to Gujrat on Sunday, they’ll be greeted by Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi and his wife, Moonis Elahi. On their way between Gujrat and Jhelum, the PTI marchers would stop at Sarai Alamgir.
