ISLAMABAD : (Web Desk)- Decked in red and green, thousands of supporters of the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) have converged at Parade Ground in Islamabad for what is termed as the historic Amr Bil Maroof (enjoin the good) rally on Prime Minister Imran Khan’s call.
Charged workers of the party reached Islamabad in the shape of caravans, chanting slogans in favor of their party and leaders are carrying placards and flags to show their loyalties.
Minister for Defence Pervaiz Khattak said that the people of Pakistan will have to stand with honest leader Imran Khan and the dissident PTI members will regret.
Khattak said that PM Imran Khan wants to save the country from thieves and looters, adding that the only problem of the opposition is that the Prime Minister wants to take the country forward. Neither Imran Khan is going anywhere nor anyone can remove him, he added.
He further said that after four days, they [opposition] will be seen crying, adding that there was nothing to be scared or panicking.
Addressing the charged crowd at Parade Ground, Federal Minister for Maritime Affairs Ali Zaidi said that Prime Minster (PM) Imran Khan has brought prosperity to the country.
He said that the three rats have brought no-confidence motion against the PM after the United Nations adopted a resolution introduced by Pakistan and designated March 15 as ‘International Day to Combat Islamophobia’.
Ali Zaidi said that the party has not started yet, don’t get tired, adding that we are proud that Imran Khan has become the leader of the Muslim Ummah. He said the three rats have joined hands and they have come up with no-confidence motion.
The minister while taking a dig at PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said, “One of the three rats is such a big rat that ate all the wheat of Sindh, destroyed the hospitals and schools of Sindh, I will hunt this rat under the leadership of Imran Khan.”
“Today is a battle for Pakistan and not for PTI, it’s a battle for the future of our nation,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said in a message issued hours before the gathering.
The premier urged the citizens willing to attend the rally to leave their homes early as there would be blockages on the roads. He said that he fears that the people might not reach the venue on time.
“We are out to make Pakistan’s history today,” PM Imran Khan concluded.
The no-confidence motion against Imran Khan was submitted by opposition parties on March 8 after the PPP’s long march in Islamabad. The Opposition is confident that its motion would be carried as many PTI lawmakers have come out in the open against PM Imran Khan.
