Leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf
Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), has threatened to announce a long march this week, but according to government sources, the PML-N does not anticipate it to be any larger than its prior power displays.
According to a source in the Prime Minister’s Office, Mr. Khan’s disqualification in the Toshakhana case did not receive the positive public response that the government had anticipated.
Demonstrations Against the Election Commission of Pakistan
The “inadequate” response apparently infuriated Mr. Khan as well, who was forced to request that his supporters end their demonstrations against the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in various regions of the nation, the source claimed.
The decision to end the protests was made for a different reason, according to PTI senior leader Fawad Chaudhry. “We did not want to start our protest with a knee-jerk reaction because we have already made a thorough plan how to stage the long march and what would be its arrangements,” he said.
Mobilise a Sufficient Number of People
A source in the PM Office claimed that the PTI leader was “uncertain” about his ability to mobilise a sufficient number of people for the much-promised long march because of the “inadequate” public response.
The source claimed that ex-PM Khan’s charisma and support had been impacted by recent audio leaks in which he was allegedly heard suggesting that the US cypher should be presented as a “threat” and that his party was to “play” on it.
