Multan: Former Prime Minister Imran Khan said that he had called a session of PTI core committee on Sunday in Peshawar, where a final decision on date for his long march to Islamabad will be decided.

Addressing a huge rally here, where he was expected to announce a final date for his march to Islamabad, Imran said it could be held on any day between May 25 and May 29. He demanded that National Assembly be dissolved immediately and a date for elections announced, lashing out at current government for what he said was its inability to govern country. Criticising PML-N-led coalition government, Imran said, “They were busy conspiring but now that they have assumed power, they must tell us why they are struggling to govern country.”

“A convict is taking decisions. Sometimes they are asking National Security Committee to hike prices,” he said. He said his government collected record tax, IT exports surged by 75 percent during his tenure and Pakistan’s employment rate was highest in entire sub-continent. “You toppled our government and now I am happy comparisons are taking place.” Imran said if he did not care for nation, he would wish PML-N stayed in power for more months so that people curse as well as those “who brought them to power”. He said a wave of inflation is on its way because when rupee depreciates, “it has an impact on everything”. “If they stay in power longer, they will make Pakistan into Sri Lanka. That’s why I demand an election date as soon as possible and dissolution of assemblies.” He said police officials, Army personnel, retired Army officers and civil servants had assured that their families would be taking part in Islamabad march. “Sea of people that will head towards capital will be first of its kind in history,” Imran claimed. He said his decision to initiate a march was not based on politics, adding that “it is a revolution that will make Pakistan a great nation”
