PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari will lead his party’s “Awami March” to Islamabad today (Tuesday) after the district administration allowed the party to end its rally, that began from Karachi, at D-Chowk.
The march is headed towards the capital a day after Bilawal gave Prime Minister Imran Khan 24 hours to resign, dissolve the assembly or get ready to be ousted via a no-confidence motion.
Sources said that the district administration has issued a no-objection certificate (NOC) to the PPP to end it’s march with a rally at D-Chowk, which, according to the text of the notification will take place from 4-8pm today.
In case any state or private property is damaged the PPP will be held responsible for it, the letter said, according to sources.
The sources have also said that Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) leadership will also take part in the march, with alliance chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman informing Bilawal about the decision.
In his address to the participants of the “Awami March” at Lalamusa on Monday, Bilawal gave a 24-hour ultimatum to PM Imran to resign. He said the “selected” prime minister and his government would be sent packing through all democratic means if he does not resign.
However, he added, “umpire’s neutrality would be tested when the no-confidence motion would be presented in the assembly”.
He said the “selected” had become frightened to the extent that he had started abusing the Opposition leaders and calling them names.
The PPP chairman said his party started the “Awami March” from Karachi on February 27, and people kept joining it on the way to Islamabad.
