In what is being billed as a “historic” gathering, the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is preparing a stage for one-million-strong jalsa at Islamabad’s Parade Ground today.
Prime Minister Imran Khan will speak at the Amar Bil Maroof public jalsa, which will be held by the party. Worker delegations from all over Pakistan have begun to arrive in Islamabad, where they will congregate at the Parade Ground, where a stage has been constructed for the party’s major power show to take place later this month.
In a tweet, PTI senator Faisal Javed Khan stated that the public meeting will begin at 3 p.m. and that Prime Minister Khan will most likely address the attendees at 4 p.m.
“The jalsa being organized today is not the PTI’s war, but the battle for Pakistan’s future,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said in an audio message released early Sunday morning.
“Today, we are setting out to change the course of Pakistani history,” he declared, urging everyone who wished to attend the public gathering to travel to Islamabad as soon as possible. Despite his assurances, he expressed concern that they would not be able to be at the event in time due to traffic congestion on the routes heading into the capital.
