The tsunami can even enter the Prime Minister’s House”, Imran warned as he spoke to his supporters on Kashmir Highway after the PTI’s ‘Azadi March’ culminated on Saturday morning, kick starting the proceedings in the evening after a rest of around 10 hours. Addressing Nawaz, Kaptaan asked him to resign, saying,  “It is enough for you to have undertaken various terms in government during the last thirty years. Listen… there is a limit of patience… being a fast bowler, my patience is fast loosing now,” he declared. He said he had concrete evidence of rigging in general elections 2013. He even tried to create a rift in the ranks of the PML-N government by inviting Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, a stalwart of the ruling party, to join the sit-in, and leave his party. “Nisar decide whether you are with democracy or monarchy,” Imran said in a serious but emotional tone. “You should leave the Noon League and join PTI,” Imran added.Commenting on what he said nomination of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif in Model Town carnage, Imran said that the first wicket has fallen and it appeared Shahbaz would have to go behind bars. In the same breath, Imran anticipated the same fate for Nawaz once the alleged polls rigging would be exposed.Imran also raised the slogan ‘Go Nawaz Go’ that was responded vehemently by his workers, when he predicted a dark future of Nawaz. He also lashed out at those Pakistanis sitting in their houses and labelled them as non-political people. Earlier, upon his arrival in the capital city, Imran demanded that Nawaz resign and announce a re-election. After approaching the venue on Kashmir Highway as he arrived from Lahore while leading the ‘Azadi March’, the PTI chairman said there was “no democracy in Pakistan but kingship”. “I had told the people of Lahore before embarking on the march that I will return victorious,” Imran Khan clad in black shalwar kameez said to the cheering crowd.PTI President Javed Hashmi in his speech said the people had rejected the government and claimed that PTI Chairman Imran Khan was the most favourite leader of the nation. PTI Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi in his speech condemned the attack on the marchers by the PML-N workers in Gujranwala. Sheikh Rashid Ahmed of the Pakistan Awami League claimed that the march would come to an end with the PM’s resignation.
