Imran vows one million will march to Islamabad

ISLAMABAD: A million people will march to the capital on November 2, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan vowed on Monday.

Khan spoke with journalists outside his Bani Gala residence and referring to the prime minister said, “There is still time. Either resign or hold yourself accountable based on the jointly agreed upon Terms of Reference.”

Without naming anyone he said, “We will not go to jail, you will hide from the law.” Reports in the media claim that the government is chalking out a plan to arrest key PTI leaders before the expected ‘lockdown’ of the capital.

The PTI chairman added that the prime minister was maligning hospitals to divert attention from corruption. Leading up to the PTI’s Islamabad sit-in, members of the PML-N have accused Imran Khan of misusing funds for Shaukhat Khanum Hospital.

He added that every time his party asked the prime minister to come out clean against the Panama Leaks, there were attacks at the Line of Control. Predicting a conspiracy behind the coincidence he said, “Such incidents occur to save Nawaz Sharif from accountability.”

PTI has threatened to lay siege at the capital on November 2 in a bid to pressurise the prime minister to present himself for accountability against alleged corruption in the Panama Papers.

The Supreme Court is currently hearing the Panama Leaks case against the Prime Minister. Last week the court sent notices to all parties including the prime minister in relation to the case.
