Police battled with PTI activists in several regions of the nation after authorities attempted to stop them from traveling to the capital, where former Prime Minister Imran Khan prepares to address a massive political rally.
Khan is driving a big caravan from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to Islamabad to demand the government’s ouster and an urgent national poll.
If the government does not accede to his demands, he promises to stage the “largest march” in Pakistan’s political history. Khan’s caravan has entered Punjab, according to the latest news, after supporters dismantled barriers from the Attock bridge.
“We have reached Punjab and will, inshaAllah, be marching towards Islamabad,” Khan stated on Twitter.
“This imported government’s state persecution and fascism will not halt or dissuade our march.”
We have entered Punjab and will InshAllah be heading towards Islamabad.
No amount of state oppression and fascism by this imported govt can stop or deter our march.#حقیقی_آزادی_مارچ pic.twitter.com/NMRNRU2F3G

All PTI party members should come out of their homes and hold demonstrations throughout the nation, according to the former prime minister. He said, “I am arriving in Islamabad in 2.5 hours.”
Meanwhile, PTI employees have begun to arrive at D-Chowk and have begun removing the containers used to enclose the area. To prevent demonstrators from approaching the area, police used tear gas.
