Despite warnings from intelligence services about potential security risks, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is moving on with its power show in Rawalpindi today. To keep the march safe, over 10,000 police officers will be on hand.
On Friday, PTI was granted permission to hold a rally in the garrison city, but the event was moved from Faizabad to Rehmanabad along Murree Road.
PTI leader and ex-prime minister Imran Khan will join his supporters and the participants of the “Haqeeqi Azadi” march in Rawalpindi for a “mammoth” public assembly on the Murree Road.
Flying down from Lahore, Imran Khan will touch down at the Agriculture University of Rawalpindi’s stadium. During the long march in Wazirabad in early November, Imran Khan was shot and wounded. This will be his first public appearance since then.
Khan has promised that at his address in Rawalpindi today, he would disclose his next plan of action.
PTI rallies from various parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, Sindh, and Gilgit-Baltistan will assemble on the Peshawar-Islamabad Motorway before proceeding to Rawalpindi for the “Haqeeqi Azadi” march.
