Political temperature at peak in capital as PTI leaders address parade ground rally

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) power show is underway at Parade Ground in the capital with party leaders taking turns addressing charged workers who flocked on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s call ahead of a no-trust vote.

Meanwhile, the premier has also arrived at the venue in a helicopter while a large crowd can be seen at the venue with buses and cars lined up next to the parade ground.

The grand show started with Defence Minister Pervez Khattak’s speech in which he mentioned that dissident PTI members will regret deserting Khan during a hard time.


Planning Minister Asad Umar said Imran Khan was waging a war against opposition leaders who were indulging in politics in Pakistan through using their ill-gotten money. He called no trust vote a petty thing saying he will win this battle.

He also advised the PM to call fresh polls to let the opposition know with whom masses stand.

PTI Sindh president Ali Zaidi and Punjab President Shafqat Mahmood also slammed the opposition.

Pakistan’s ruling party earlier removed crews of private TV channels from the venue but later allowed reporters back inside the venue.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Imran Khan shared an important voice note with his party supporters ahead of a public gathering in Islamabad today (March 27).

In a voice message, the PTI chairman said, “Today is a battle for Pakistan and not for PTI, it’s a battle for the future of our nation.

The premier urged the citizens willing to attend the rally to leave their homes early as there would be rush and blockages on the roads. He said that he fears that the people might not reach the venue on time.

“We are out to make Pakistan’s history today,” PM Imran Khan concluded.

The federal capital is all set to host a major political power show as the workers of ruling PTI from different parts of the country have started reaching the Parade Ground to participate in “Amr-bel-Maroof” rally.

As the clock ticks towards PTI’s rally, all the preparations of the event also move towards completion. The stage for the rally has been made using 36 containers while a special container has been placed for the senior leadership.

Prime Minister Imran Khan had tasked party leaders to gather one million people for the rally. Addressing a rally in Swat recently, the premier had urged the nation to reach Islamabad on March 27 to tell the world that Pakistanis “stand with the truth and are against corruption”.

The opposition parties are also marching towards Islamabad ahead of the vote of no-confidence against PM Imran Khan.

The workers and leaders of the JUI-F, representing the Opposition parties’ alliance, Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), are already at the venue of their rally to be held tomorrow (Monday) at Srinagar Highway.

PML-N caravan, “Mehngai Mukao March”, led by Maryam Nawaz and leader of the Opposition in Punjab Assembly Hamza Shehbaz are also on their way to join PDM in Islamabad.
