Imran holds first public rally tomorrow in Peshawar after ouster

ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan will hold a public rally in Peshawar against toppling his government on the alleged ‘foreign conspiracy’.

In a brief video message shared from PTI official twitter account, Imran Khan, who became the nation’s first-ever leader to be voted out through a no-confidence motion, said that Shahbaz Sharif’s government has been “imposed on our nation as a result of a foreign conspiracy”.

“Only the people — neither the army nor any other state institution — can protect the democracy of a country,” he said in his video statement.

A separate post on the account said the rally will be held on Ring Road near the motorway in Peshawar.

The party has announced a series of countrywide protests and rallies starting tonight. It will hold a rally in Peshawar tomorrow, Karachi on April 16 and Lahore on April 23 to demand early, and free and fair elections.

Late on Sunday, thousands of Khan’s supporters poured onto streets across Pakistan. Holding placards and waving flags, they promoted Khan’s party, and chanted slogans in his favour.

Young people, who make up the backbone of Khan’s supporters, dominated the crowds.

In Karachi alone, more than 20,000 people shouted slogans promising Khan’s return to power. Whereas, in Islamabad, the lights from thousands of supporters lit up the night sky.
