Imran likely to give call for long march after by-polls: Rasheed

Sheikh Rashid

Former federal information minister and Awami Muslim League (AML) Chairman Sheikh Rasheed on Sunday expressed the hope that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will give a call for his long-awaited long march after Sunday’s by-elections. Addressing a press conference in Rawalpindi, Rasheed said the people

should expect a “do or die” call from Imran. Responding to questions on the recent audio leaks and talk of leaked videos, Rasheed remained defiant and said that despite the leaks, the public remains steadfast behind the former prime minister because he has

‘done nothing’ and that the nation should protect him. On the suggestion that the government would deploy the military in the federal to stop the long march, Rasheed stated that the army can never shoot at their own people. There was a global conspiracy to spread religious chaos in Pakistan, he continued, “I want to tell Shehbaz Sharif that the nation will not stand with you for any irresponsible action over national security.”
