PTI Lahore jalsa: Imran Khan all set to address rally

Published

on

LAHORE: PTI Chairman and ex-prime minister Imran Khan is all set to address the PTI’s rally in Punjab’s capital after the party held massive jalsas in Peshawar and Karachi.

The rally is part of PTI’s public contact campaign after Khan was ousted from power through a no-confidence campaign and the party chairman has refused to accept the new government.

The ousted premier has repeatedly asked people to come out and support him as the incumbent government has been formed, according to him, with the backing of the United States.

Just a day back, the PTI chairman participated in a Twitter Spaces session — which by far has been one of the largest spaces in Pakistan — where spoke on several issues, including the election commission, former aides, and the letter-gate controversy.

Meanwhile, in the wake of security threats to Khan related to today’s PTI rally in Lahore, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had ordered the provision of foolproof security to his predecessor.

A statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office on Twitter said that the premier has directed the Interior Division to take measures in this regard.

The PTI leadership claims that the public meeting at Minar-e-Pakistan will be unprecedented and will “announce the departure of the incumbent government”.

The party had held successful power shows at Minar-e-Pakistan and the one held on October 30, 2011, became the turning point in its struggle after which this party emerged as a major political force in the country.

In his last address to the Karachi rally, Khan had even claimed that the incumbent “imported” government was trying to push the PTI out of the political arena through the foreign funding case, therefore, for the sake of fairness, the court cases against PPP, PTI, and PML-N must be heard together.

The election of the Senate’s chairman and deputy chairman is going to be boycotted by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

The PTI’s political and core committee declares that it is unlawful to elect the Senate’s chairman and deputy chairman. The party has chosen to file a legal challenge to the election.

The sources from the core committee claimed that the election of the chairman and deputy chairman was unlawful and that the House of Federation was incomplete.

The constitutional plan was also violated by the Senate election that took place without Khyber Pakhtunkhwa senators being elected. According to sources, the Senate was not operating without a chairman.

The Senate Secretariat was only able to make administrative decisions. The source stated that the Senate secretary was not authorized to interpret the Constitution on his own while under duress and that the Upper House was only able to function as one department in the absence of the Senate chairman.

They said that this was the first time in a democratic regime that the Senate had stopped operating.

The PTI claimed that individuals responsible for the upper house’s non-functioning should face consequences for trampling on the constitutional structure.

According to NASA, there is a path where the eclipse will be visible in its entirety, and outside of this area, spectators may notice a partial eclipse, in which the moon covers part of the sun but not all of it.

In the ensuing two decades, there won’t be another full solar eclipse. On October 2, South America will witness the second solar eclipse of the year. Yet it will just be a portion of it.
