During his Islamabad rally at D-Chowk on March 27, Prime Minister Imran Khan said he hoped to ‘fight for Pakistan’s soul’ by breaking all attendance records.
A week before the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf demonstration at D-Chowk, the premier took to his official Twitter account to condemn the “shameless purchasing of politicians’ souls by political mafias to protect their looted wealth”.
Earlier this week, the PTI organised a “massive power show” at Islamabad’s D-Chowk on March 27 to “express faith in their leader [PM Imran]”. The ruling party is likely to respond to the opposition’s no-confidence motion.
“I have invited people to a rally in Islamabad on March 27,” the premier remarked.
On Saturday, the PTI issued show-cause notices to dissident members for joining opposition parties, expressing hope that the alienated lawmakers would soon return to the party fold.
The ruling party reminded the dissidents that as members, they must obey the PTI’s orders. It invited parliamentarians to explain why they appeared to be leaving the party within seven days.
In the past, PM Imran remarked, “bags of notes” were used to “buy the conscience” of parliamentarians, similar to what Nawaz Sharif did in Changa Manga.
