MARDAN: PTI Chairman Imran Khan warned that if a date for the general elections is not announced, then the “sea of people” heading towards Islamabad would be detrimental to the interests of the government.

The PTI chairman has held a series of jalsas in different cities, including Karachi, Mianwali, Lahore, and Peshawar, as he rallies his party workers and leaders against the government ahead of the Islamabad march.

In his address during the Mardan jalsa, the PTI chairman said he was calling people to Islamabad for a “revolution” that sought “real independence” for Pakistan.

“From here, I am giving a message to the corrupt thugs […] and the convict should also hear this: You will not make decisions for the country, but citizens will decide who will rule Pakistan,” Khan said.

Warning to the ‘neutral’

The PTI chairman reiterated the United States had “conspired” against his regime, while the current government’s “Mir Sadiqs and Mir Jafars” were involved in it.

Khan said when he came to know about the “conspiracy” then he went to the “people who could stop it. “I told them that if this conspiracy succeeds, then our economy will falter given its current condition.”

The ex-prime minister said he asked former finance minister Shaukat Tarin to tell those who “call themselves neutral” that the economy will collapse, but unfortunately, they did not stop it.

“The dollar is nearing Rs200, the stock market is plunging, everything is becoming expensive […] the media should ask the people how expensive things are as they would do during our government,” Khan said.
