In a video message to the participants of the long march, the former premier asked party workers and supporters to arrive in Rawalpindi on November between 1-2pm. “I’ll meet you there,” he said.
“You [workers and supporters] should try to reach between 1-2pm. I will myself address and give the next plan of action,” the PTI Chairman added, reiterating that there was no other solution to the country’s issues than fresh and fair elections.
“We can never achieve real freedom while sitting at home,” the former prime minister said, urging the supporters to come out and forced the government to call snap polls.
He also chastised the current government for its ‘failed economic policies,’ claiming that the current rules lack any plan or road map for bringing the country out of crisis.
“What Pakistan has achieved by regime change in the last seven months,” he asked, adding: “Why they were them on the country.”
Imran Khan further said that the nation cannot afford to remain neutral at the current juncture. “I have no need to risk my life and set out but it was in my mind from childhood that death is better than slavery,” he added.
In relation to the wristwatch scandal, Imran Khan claimed that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) was behind the ‘fake’ story against him.
“They made the story on me about what I did with the watch,” he said, adding that he would not get justice from local courts and that is why he would be approaching international courts.
