Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has announced to hold Islamabad long march on May 25.

Addressing a press conference in Peshawar on Sunday after chairing a meeting of PTI’s core committee, Khan reiterated the ‘foreign conspiracy’ to topple his government, lamenting that they couldn’t stop it to succeed.

PTI chairman informed workers to join him at Srinagar Highway in Islamabad at 3 pm.

Khan urged the people to join his long march because “this is not politics, but Jihad towards the real independence”.

“We will take legal action if hurdles are created for the peaceful long march,” he added.

The former prime minister was flanked by several PTI leaders, including Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

The ousted premier praised the progress his government made during its tenure and criticised the incumbent setup for pushing the country towards bankruptcy.

He said that the PTI government had got a nearly bankrupt Pakistan but had rescued it and put the economy on the right track.

He claimed that there was no corruption in the PTI’s tenure, adding that the incumbent incompetent government is asking National Security Committee (NSC) to decide on the petrol prices.

The PTI chairperson called for free and fair elections, adding that if the nation would bring the current government back into power then he would accept it.

“No country from outside will be allowed to impose them on us,” he said.
