The Awami Long March of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) will cross into Punjab today (Wednesday) through Sadiqabad, a city on the Sindh-Punjab border that serves as a staging point for the march.
On Sunday, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) launched its ‘Awami Long March’ from the Quaid’s tomb in Sukkur, led by the party’s chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, and stayed in Sukkur after walking through its allocated routes.
Sardar Mumtaz Khan, a member of Parliament for the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), has stated that the participants of the long march will be greeted with welcoming hands at the Sindh-Punjab border.
In addition, arrangements have been made for 50,000 people to remain in the city, and thousands of employees will participate in the march from Sadiqabad.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), addressed the marchers in Sukkur yesterday night, challenging Prime Minister Imran Khan to dissolve the assembly in order to pave the path for new elections if he was not a coward.
Bilawal was critical of the federal administration, stating that the country is in “severe troubles,” that “every class is tense,” and that “the government has sown despair throughout the country.” Farmers are pleading for assistance, and people are trying to earn a living on a daily basis.
The head of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) claimed that the country’s new Prime Minister has caused unemployment and inflation among the country’s citizens. He went on to say that Imran Khan has no empathy for the people and that he has misled and cheated them throughout his career.
