Wazirabad: The stalled long march of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will resume from the same spot in Wazirabad on Thursday (today), where it was halted last week due to an assassination attempt on party chief Imran Khan.
Senior PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry confirmed that the Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Haqeqi Azadi March will start again today and that Imran Khan’s address to the rally will be screened at 04:30 pm.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Wednesday claimed that he had discovered the assassination plot hatched against him almost two months ago and exposed it during his rallies in Rahim Yar Khan on September 24 and Mianwali on October 7.
He said that the Wazirabad assassination attempt on him followed the script.
The PTI chief has already named three persons who, according to him, were involved in the attack. The list included PM Shehbaz, Rana Sanaullah and a senior military officer, Major General Faisal.
“I wiĺl also disclose the name of the second officer who was sitting with Maj General Faisal in the control room from around 12 noon to 5 pm monitoring the execution of the plot,” he said in the next tweet.

Regarding the arrival of the long march in Islamabad, which, before the attack on Imran Khan, was expected to happen on November 11, Fawad Chaudhry on Wednesday said that Imran Khan would arrive at the designated in Rawalpindi in the third week of November, accompanied by millions of people.
Meanwhile, PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday said that the protests against the attempt on party chief Imran Khan’s life in Wazirabad continue across the country as the FIR registered on the case is “not acceptable”.
Qureshi said that all their focus is on the FIR, which was registered without listening to what the complainant had to say.
“Justice cannot be served till Rana Sanaullah remains in his post,” Qureshi said.
He said that the PTI will return only after taking the date for the next general election and that the entire nation is ready for it. He also said that the long march will resume from Wazirabad on Thursday and that it will achieve its target under any circumstances.
