After spending the previous night at Tando Muhammad Khan, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) started their Awami Long March to Islamabad on Monday.
On Sunday, the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) launched its ‘Awami Long March’ from the Quaid’s tomb to Tando Muhammad Khan, after walking via Malir and Badin. The march was led by the party’s chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
In a speech to the participants, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the PPP long march had received a warm welcome throughout its path, and he thanked the people for their enormous support. “The people of Pakistan have shown tremendous support,” he remarked.
People are suffering from the worst economic condition possible as a result of the PTI government’s misguided policies, Bilawal claimed, adding that the average man is drowning in Tsumani.
The Awami Long March will now travel to Hyderabad, where Bilawal Bhutto will address the protesters in Garibabad, where the march will end. The preparations are in full swing in Hyderabad, and businesses in the Garibabad region have been ordered to lock their doors today in order to avoid disruption.
Barbwire and tents are being used to secure the area, and a huge number of police officers and traffic cops have arrived to help secure the situation.
The PPP’s long march will go through 34 key cities across the country and would arrive in Islamabad, the country’s capital, in 10 days.
The receiving camps have been set up along the National Highway and in a number of cities along the march’s route, with party volunteers on hand to ensure the safety of the long march.
