Imran addresses Minar-e-Pakistan power show

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) grand power show is underway at the historic Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore against the newly-formed coalition government led by the PML-N.

PTI Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan is addressing the mammoth crowd shortly.

‘Civil war’

Former interior minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has warned that the civil war in the country will break out if anything happened to Imran Khan amid “security threats”.

“I will remain to stand by Imran Khan till the last drop of my blood,” said Rashid while addressing the charged crowd.

He also accused PPP stalwart Asif Ali Zardari of involvement in the murder of her wife and former premier Benazir Bhutto.

‘New conspiracy’

PTI Vice-Chairman and ex-foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that a “new conspiracy” is being hatched in Islamabad to disqualify Imran Khan and ban the PTI in the foreign funding case.

“We answered all queries of the ECP [Election Commission of Pakistan] and provided all documentary evidence…but will not accept the lopsided accountability,” said Qureshi while asking the supporters to take the streets to foil the so-called conspiracy.

He also lamented that the PTI-led government was not allowed to complete its five-year constitutional tenure due to “conspiracy”.

Despite “poor” performance, Qureshi said, the previous governments of PPP and PML-N completed their tenure.

Lahore deputy commissioner had advised Imran to address the public gathering via video link instead of physically participating in the rally citing security threats.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif earlier today also ordered foolproof security for former premier Imran, after the latter received security threats prior to his rally in Lahore.

The premier ordered Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah to take immediate and effective measures regarding the security threats and directed him to personally monitor and ensure the implementation of his orders.

A huge stage has been prepared in front of Minar-e-Pakistan with huge containers. PTI leadership said that it will be the biggest ever and the most important public gathering in political history of Pakistan as it will decide the future course of this country.

Punjab PTI President Shafqat Mahmood, on Wednesday, presided over a meeting of the organising committee Minar-e-Pakistan public gathering.

The meeting reviewed all arrangements and highlighted route plan has been finalised. List of participants sitting on the stage along with senior PTI leadership has been decided.

The party had directed all leaders available in the provincial capital to reach Minar-e-Pakistan after Iftar along with rallies.
