ISLAMABAD (APS) October 17, 2016– Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, Imran Khan has announced on Monday to ‘shut’ the federal capital to pressure the government on November 2 for accountability of the premier.
The announcement came in as revision to the previously declared date, October 30.
While addressing the press conference in Islamabad, Khan warned the government of strong reaction if it attempted to fail the ‘massive’ protest using force.
The PTI leader took a jibe at different political parties namely, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) for not being ‘serious’ to counter government’s corruption. He claimed that Asif Ali Zadari, former president, stood on the same platform with the corrupt government and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the issue.
Khan said that PTI made attempts to bring together different opposition parties for alleged betterment of the country. He has invited every Pakistani to participate in the sit-in on November 2 to move the country towards prosperity by getting rid of corrupt leaders.
There would not be any sit-in after the one to be held on November 2 as it was the decisive move by the political organisation, he asserted.
The protest in Islamabad by PTI was announced by the party chief on September 30 in a rally in Lahore’s Raiwind while he ‘granted’ the premier time until Muharram s end to present himself for accountability over alleged unaccounted-for wealth.
