Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday invited the nation to join him on March 27 to reinstate the government’s stance against the “dacoits” ruling Pakistan for the last 30 years.
In a special message for the nation broadcast on television, social media and radio, the premier said that the “group of bandits” who have been looting the county for the last 30 years have joined hands in “auctioning the conscience of the elected public representatives.”
“They are practicing this publicly,” he said, adding that the people of Pakistan should join him on March 27 to convey their message that the nation is against evil.
He said that the people should tell the Opposition that the act of horse-trading being done from black money is “unacceptable” so that nobody dares to commit such crimes next time.
The premier asked the people of the country to “stand with the good” and “against evil”, urging them to show support.
Earlier, Senator Faisal Javed Khan had tweeted that the premier would deliver an important message to the people of Pakistan and invite them to attend the ruling party’s power show in Islamabad on March 27.
Following the order of the Supreme Court barring political parties from entering the Red Zone, the PTI had changed the venue of its planned March 27 power show in Islamabad from D-Chowk to Parade Ground.
In a tweet, the PTI said that “the Parade Ground will be more suitable to accommodate the number of people that are expected to participate in the rally.”
PM Imran Khan had tasked party leaders to gather one million people for the rally, with Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry saying that it would be a small “referendum” in the face of the no-confidence motion against the premier.
The premier, addressing a rally in Swat last week, 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 PTI has called their public gathering “Amr-bel-Maroof” in response to the Opposition’s no-trust motion to show support to the prime minister.
