In order to keep the momentum it has built in its recent rallies, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) is going to hold a public gathering in Gujranwala today for which preparations are now in final stages, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

Stage has been set and chairs have been placed at the city’s cricket stadium, venue of the event as thousands of people are expected to throng the stadium later in the evening today.     

Former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan, who is facing wrath of the authorities for his anti-army and anti-judiciary remarks at the party’s recent public gatherings, said in a tweet yesterday (Friday, September 9, 2022) that he would announce the future course of action at today’s rally.   

He went on to say that the imported government and its ‘handlers’ were feeling jittery because they knew that the masses were standing by the PTI. “And in this state of despair, they are working on the minus-one formula,” he concluded.

Sheikh Rashid’s tweet

Awami Muslim League head and former interior minister Sheikh Rashid said on Saturday that presently masses were pitted against the might of the state, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.

In his two tweets, he said that greater responsibility now lay on the shoulders of judiciary in the legal battle currently being fought in courts.  

“People’s patience is running thin,” he warned. 

Rashid went on to say that devastating floods in Sindh and Balochistan and resultantly the loss of human life and property and spate of inflation are testing people’s patience. “Imperialist forces are dictating their terms to the government,” he said, adding, “But sadly the country is still short of dollars.”  

Former interior minister said that after the court’s verdict in PTI MNA Abdul Shakoor Shad’s resignation acceptance case, the resignations given by all party MNAs now lay suspended. 

He accused the coalition government, consisting of the parties part of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), of nepotism and neglecting the poor. “Their policy is not of poverty alleviation but of eliminating the poor,” he commented.
