Imran Khan, the former prime minister and chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), said that his long march, called the Azadi March, would start in Peshawar and end in Islamabad.
In a video message posted to his Twitter account, Imran Khan said that he would start his Azadi March in Peshawar and go all the way to the Wali interchange.
The former prime minister and current head of the PTI flew from Peshawar to Swabi by helicopter, and he will lead the procession from the Ambar Interchange.
As police continue to raid the homes of PTI activists, the government has shut down the roads between KP and Punjab. The government has also banned gatherings of more than four people in Sindh, Punjab, and the Islamabad Capital Territory under Section 144.
Earlier in the day, caravans of PTI supporters from all over the country left for Islamabad, despite strong opposition from the police.
In order to stop Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) protesters from marching to Islamabad for the “Azadi March,” police in Lahore used tear gas and baton charges.
Details show that the Lahore police cracked down on PTI workers who were marching toward Islamabad as part of the “Azadi March” that former prime minister Imran Khan had called for. Hammad Azhar, who used to be a federal minister, was in charge of the PTI’s Lahore caravan.
At Lahore’s Bati Chowk and other parts of the city, PTI marchers were stopped by a large number of police officers.
As a result, dozens of protesters were arrested at Lahore’s Bati Chowk as they fought with the police. During the police clash, PTI leader Zubair Niazi was also taken into custody.
