Second long march may not be needed



Former Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed on Thursday hoped that a positive outcome would emerge out of the ongoing situation following Imran Khan’s announcement to call-off his long march in Islamabad.

Speaking to reporters, Rasheed said that Imran Khan has given a six-day deadline to announce the date for elections and hopefully there would be no need for the second long march. “At least five people have lost their lives across Pakistan owing to police torture during long march,” he said and lamented that people were tortured and their vehicles were damaged. “I had said that this march could turn violent,” he reminded.

Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed said that he is foreseeing a better solution even if it might get late. “If the situation gets improved, the credit for it will go to Imran Khan,” he said.—INP
