The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is set to host a public gathering today at Islamabad’s Parade Ground, which is expected to be attended by the former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan. This rally comes as Khan prepares to lead a rally from Rawalpindi to the Parade Ground venue.
In a post shared on Twitter, Imran Khan invited everyone to come to the Parade Ground for the party’s “historic” power show against the “imported government’s” anti-people measures.
“InshaAllah tomorrow will be our historic Islamabad jalsa at Parade Ground against Imported govt’s pol destabilisation & crushing our people under the burden of excessive loadshedding in peak of summer & spiralling fuel prices. I will be leading a rally from Pindi to Parade Ground.”
Meanwhile, security measures have been put in place for today’s public meeting. Caravans from different cities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) have left for Islamabad to participate in the party’s power show. The PTI Karachi chapter will set up a screen at Sea View beach for the live telecast of PTI Chairman Imran Khan’s address in Islamabad.
