Prime News, International (Islamabad), May 23:- Pakistan’s ousted prime minister Imran Khan on Sunday asked his supporters to march peacefully to Islamabad on May 25 to press for the dissolution of the National Assembly and fresh elections in the country.
Khan, 69, who served as prime minister for over three and half years, was removed from the position through a no-confidence vote in parliament by the Opposition parties last month. Since his removal, Khan has addressed several rallies in different cities.
Addressing a press conference after his party’s core committee meeting in Peshawar, Khan said the march would convert into a sit-in and continue until his demands are accepted, the Dawn newspaper reported. “The main demands for the march to the capital were the immediate dissolution of the National Assembly and a date for the next general election,” he said during the press conference.
Khan said he wants people from all walks of life to participate in the march to raise clamour against his removal as the prime minister which he called as “illegal”. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
