Imran Khan, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), announced on Saturday that his party would hold daily rallies beginning the following week until May 14, when the Supreme Court set the date for the Punjab Assembly elections.
Khan informed party members of the choice during a rally that was held at the Lakshmi Chowk metro station in Lahore. The purpose of the gathering was to express support for Pakistan’s Constitution, Supreme Court, and Chief Justice. In Lahore, Rawalpindi, Islamabad, and Peshawar, PTI held rallies.
Khan reaffirmed his commitment to upholding the Constitution and objecting to the pressure the current coalition government is putting on the judiciary. Additionally, he disclosed the schedule for daily rallies and declared his intent to organize the populace for protests in the event that elections are not held.
Khan contends that disobeying a nation’s constitution spells the demise of the legal system and the rule of law. However, it more importantly denotes the loss of a country’s freedom and independence. He emphasized that PTI would not stop working until Pakistan was freed and elections were held.
Khan criticized the treatment Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari received from his Indian counterpart during Bhutto-Zardari’s recent trip to India for the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting, calling it “a matter of shame for all of us.”
In addition, Khan addressed the remarks made by Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, the minister of state for external affairs of India, who described Bilawal as “a promoter, justifier, and spokesperson of a terrorism industry which is the mainstay of Pakistan.” Khan questioned Jaishankar’s manners and etiquette, saying that it is improper to welcome a visitor to your country and then insult them.
