ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has said that no forces can stop ‘Azadi March’ on August 14 and his party’s supporters and the general public will reach the announced destination.
Talking to journalists on Saturday, he said that threats would not keep him away from marching towards the federal capital on August 14. He also asked the Punjab police to let them protest peacefully. He also told a private TV channel that he had no plans of talking with the government directly or indirectly.
“I would like to ask other parties to make a decision. Don’t play on both sides of the wicket – are you with the king, or are you with democracy,” he said while commenting about the stance of other political parties. He said it was a struggle for democracy against kingdom, and the decision will be made at D-Chowk in Islamabad on August 14.
In a statement issued by the party’s secretariat, Imran said that his ‘Azadi March’ would come to Islamabad regardless of the barriers the government is trying to put up. He also called on all parties to join PTI’s ‘fight for democracy’ against king. “No one can play both sides of the fence. The time has come to stand up and be counted: for democracy or for kingship.”
