Raiwind march before Muharram: Imran

Staff Reporter

Islamabad—Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan said on Friday that party’s Raiwind march will be organised before Muharram at all costs, but a change in the schedule was possible.
“We have not yet issued a final date for the Raiwind siege but there will be a march followed by a procession, Imran told reporters in Bani Gala, here. “We will march towards Raiwind with or without the opposition parties and bring Lahore city to a standstill if we are stopped from protest.”
Imran said the rulers were struggling to hide their corruption by filing references against those bringing it to the fore.
“The PML-N used Punjab police against the innocent people of Model Town, Lahore,” Imran said while referring to the deaths of 14 PAT workers.
He, however, made it clear that his party does not intend to ‘siege “anyone’s house”, saying it has never done this before.
“If we were stopped from practicing our democratic right of protest, then it will have serious consequences such as a shutdown of the entire city,” Imran cautioned.
PTI chairman reiterated that the premier was causing the institutions to become weak to hide his own corruption, while the National Accountability Bureau does not pay heed to the Panama leaks probe demands.
