While the speculations of former Pakistan prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan are still in the air, he announced the launch of the ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek'(fill the prison movement). This movement is aimed against the ruling coalition of the Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz and the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP).
Imran, while addressing a public gathering in Mianwali on Saturday, warned the federal government against threatening the PTI supporters of detention. Khan said that he would “sacrifice his life for real freedom of the country.”
He further said that “millions of people are ready to fill jails. We are not scared of getting arrested as I would soon announce a Jail Bharo Tehreek.”
Ahead of the Azadi march, Khan said that his party has “far better plans than the government for the protest.” “All plans of the ‘imported’ government against PTI would fail and they would be forced to announce elections,” he claimed.
A plan ‘B’ has been prepared by the ruling Pakistani govt to arrest the PTI chief before entering Islamabad fearing he would begin his Azadi march from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa or Punjab, or at Rawat T-cross. Police are deployed to arrest him in Tranol, in incase he tried to enter the capital from that direction.
