Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan gave a six-day ultimatum to the incumbent government to announce fresh polls in the country.
Imran Khan upon reaching Islamabad after nearly 30 hours of traveling addressed the marchers and gathered enthusiastically to support the cause.
In his address, the former prime minister maintained that he has giving the federal government a timeline of six days to dissolve the assemblies and announce elections.
He was of the view that the government tried its best to crash the Azadi March but PTI remained peaceful during the march.
“Our homes were raided and privacy of homes was violated, they tried every method to crush our protest but I have seen the nation free of fear of slavery,” he added.
“I am giving a six-day ultimatum to the government to dissolve assemblies and announce elections in June.”
Imran Khan also lamented the death of PTI workers who lost their lives during the Azadi March.
He also forewarned the government that the Azadi marchers would return to Islamabad in case of no announcement from the government regarding elections within six days.
“I will come back again to Islamabad after six days,” he added.
On the other hand, the protestors in Karachi who gathered at Numaish Chowk for peaceful demonstrations against the government returned after the announcement by Imran Khan.
Notably, PTI’s chief called the nation for Azadi March on May 25 against the “imported government”.
Multiple PTI workers and leaders were arrested a day before and during the march. Not only this, the crowd gathered in different cities, including women and children, in Punjab and Sindh were shelled with tear gas repeatedly to disperse them.
The PTI workers braved shelling, cleared all obstacles by the government, and reached D-Chowk Islamabad to protest the government.
