A day earlier, Imran said that he had “no doubt” that the turnout for his party’s march in Islamabad and Rawalpindi will “break all records of public gatherings in Pakistan.”
He warned that his movement will continue for the next 10 months. “Nobody should think our movement will end in Islamabad, it will continue for the next 10 months until we don’t have elections,” the former premier said while addressing long march participants.
The march aims to reach Islamabad on November 11 in a bid to pressure the government into calling immediate elections.
