Tehreek-e-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan says that I do not have any unconstitutional demand, I only want a transparent election.
According to the details, the true freedom rally of Liberty Chowk started in Lahore and PTI President Imran Khan gave an enthusiastic speech to the participants of Liberty Chowk.
Addressing them, Imran Khan said I am starting the most important journey, our great army leader has freed us from the British, now it is time for us to start the journey for the real freedom of the country.
The PTI chief said my rally is not for politics or personal interest, the purpose of the march is only to liberate our nation, and decisions should be made outside the country, neither London nor Washington.
The ex-prime minister said that the decisions of Pakistan should be made in Pakistan, and no one should tell us to join anyone’s war, if Russia gives us cheap oil, I can save our nation from inflation, if no one orders it.
He said I wanted to see a free country, people watching the spectacle, the nation sinking into inflation, which is the most expensive thing this importing government has done in 50 years.
Regarding the current government, Imran Khan said that they are forgiving 1,100 crores of theft and corruption cases, the nation is following the scene, and the nation is ready to make every sacrifice and will not accept thieves.
The head of the Ensaf movement said I want my people not to be persecuted, there should be no policy for Kashari Patwari police station, ordinary people are being cheated for their basic needs.
He said Pakistan has been mocked all over the world, our criticism is constructive but the purpose of criticism is not the weakness of the country’s institutions.
Imran Khan said he did not raise any unconstitutional demands, I want transparent elections, I don’t want to harm the country, I am not a fugitive like Nawaz Sharif, I live and die in this country.
The ex-prime minister said I want to see Pakistan as a free country, a free country needs a strong army.
Imran Khan said I am telling the judiciary that we will follow the constitution and we will remain peaceful and all our protests are peaceful, we are within the constitution and the law for 26 years.
Referring to Rana Sanaullah and Shahbaz Sharif, he said the criminal of 18 murders, Rana Sanaullah and Shahbaz Sharif, must be watched.
Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has started a protest march to the country’s capital, Islamabad, in the latest attempt to pressure the government to call early elections, while responding to the head of military intelligence.
Khan launched the protest he had called a march for “true freedom” by standing atop a makeshift convoy in a convoy of vehicles with his supporters in Lahore, about 270 kilometres east of Islamabad.
The caravan will make a slow journey to the capital in seven days, stopping in multiple cities.
The protest began a day after the head of Military Intelligence, Major General Nadim Ahmed Anjum, in a rare public appearance, called Khan for ongoing public uprisings against the military while he demanded illegal benefits in closed meetings with the institution’s head, General Qamar Javed Bajwa.
Anjum also revealed how Khan had offered Bajwa an indefinite extension in his six-year term before the leader was ousted in a parliamentary vote in April. Khan responded to the allegations at the beginning of the march.
“Open your ears and listen,” Khan said as he pointed at Anjum. “I can say a lot. I am silent. I can answer you but I do not want to hurt my country.”
Khan’s outburst of anger at the military is rare as it is seen as the country’s most powerful institution with a significant role in foreign and security policies.
It has also influenced politicians and government affairs. The Pakistan Army decided last year to become apolitical and remain within its constitutional rights, according to its spokesperson.
The political tension comes as the South Asian nation seeks to recover from disastrous floods. Moody’s Investors Service has downgraded the nation to an undesirable level even deeper due to concerns about debt repayment.
The country’s foreign exchange reserves fell to their lowest level in more than three years, before it received a $1.5 billion payment from the Asian Development Bank this week, and dollar bonds are trading at deteriorating levels.
The government of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has allowed Khan to demonstrate on land on the outskirts of Islamabad.
Khan said the protest would be peaceful and supporters would not block or enter the capital’s so-called red zone, which houses important government buildings and embassies.
The former international cricket star has won a majority of the by-election since his ouster and has drawn large crowds to the protests.
In his public speeches, he blamed his political opponents for plotting with the United States to remove him from power. They both denied the allegations.
Khan has also experienced multiple legal challenges after the government charged him with corruption and other cases, which may curb his political ambitions.
He was excluded from parliament in one case and got bail before he was arrested in several other cases.
The government said the national elections will be held on schedule after their term ends in August next year.
The government has beefed up security measures in the capital after receiving a threat of a terrorist attack on Khan’s protest, according to a statement by the Home Ministry.
Interior Minister Rana Sanalla said the government may call in the army if the demonstrators threaten the security of the capital.
