A senior leader of Pakistan’s PTI said former Prime Minister Imran Khan will present a “bigger surprise” than his predecessors at a public meeting in Lahore.
Speaking to the press, PTI member Farooq Habib announced that Imran Khan will make a “big appeal to the public” in Lahore on April 23, when his political party plans to protest against Minar-e-Pakistan.
“Khan’s announcement would be a big surprise,” says Habib.
The PTI leader also said that his party will start its public campaign from today (April 13) by holding a big rally in Peshawar. Then there will be a rally in Karachi on April 16 and in Lahore on April 23.
He added that his party plans to hold conferences for women, lawyers and social media activists at a later date.
“We want to send a clear message to [Shahbaz Sharif] that the importing government is not acceptable and we will not let this government function,” Habib said.
Imran Khan’s English Movement Party resigned from the National Assembly on Monday, refusing to sit in parliament after Shahbaz Sharif was elected prime minister and Khan was ousted in a vote of no confidence.
The movement is also demanding immediate elections in the country and is confident in its ability to return to power.
