Imran labels march as ‘jihad to get real freedom’

Imran Khan

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister on Thursday dubbed the long march as ‘jihad’ to get actual freedom, saying that he will announce the long march within a few days.

Addressing an event at the University of Sargodha, the former premier berated Punjab Governor Baligh ur Rehman and said, “Who gave him the permission to stop the political leaders from addressing the students. I ask the Punjab governor to not follow the advice of the rulers as the students are the future of the country”.

At the outset of his speech, the former premier said, “On three occasions, I had an opportunity to address the students of Oxford University. How could students become politically enlightened if leaders are not permitted to speak at the university? This is the place even for the PDM chief and JUI-F supremo, Maulana Fazl ur Rehman to come, but if the Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif will make his way to the university, then he will ask for the money.”
