PTI's long march to reach Islamabad on Nov 11, says Asad Umar on Day 6

Senior PTI leader Asad Umar on Wednesday said the party's 'Haqeeqi Azadi March' will converge on the federal capital on November 10 while other caravans will reach by November 11

The party's long march, now on the road for six days, was to reach Islamabad in seven days according to the initial plan. 

Umar made the announcement of the new schedule of arrival on Twitter earlier today.

حقیقی آزادی مارچ کے نئے شیڈول کے مطابق انشاءاللہ کپتان 10 نومبر کو راولپنڈی پہنچیں گے اور 11 نومبر کو تمام پاکستان سے قافلے اسلام آباد پہنچیں گے #حقیقی_آزادی_لانگ_مارچ

However, he did not provide further explanation for the preponement of the march, that too considering delays after the party had temporarily called off the march following the tragic accidental death of a reporter covering the event.

The schedule for PTI's march to enter the most sensitive areas of Rawalpindi was finalised earlier according to which the participants of the long march will enter the garrison city from T-Chowk Rawat instead of the Islamabad Expressway under the leadership of party chairman Imran Khan.

The participants of the long march will enter from Rawat to GT Road, Swan Camp, Jhelum District Kachheri Road, and from District Kachheri Chowk to Murrir Hasan. They will enter Murree Road from Punjab House, Murrir Chowk, and will settle at Murree Road for one day.

Meanwhile, the Punjab provincial home department has issued a high alert for Rawalpindi ahead of the arrival of the PTI long march.

The provincial home department has asked the district administration, police, law enforcement agencies and hospitals to remain on high alert and take precautionary measures ahead of the protest march.

Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Tuesday, while a addressing news conference in the federal capital, had asked the PTI chief to shun politics of “agitation” and sit down with the political parties to resolve disputes through dialogue “for the sake of Pakistan”.

“Imran Khan needs to give up his agenda of riots as the country needs consensus at this time and not hypocrisy,” he had said.

The security czar had claimed that the PTI chairman kicked off his long march ith seven to eight thousand people. “Today there are only five to seven thousand people in the march but a shameless person says a ‘sea of people’ is present in the caravan.”

He had said it was the responsibility of the government to maintain law and order and protect the lives of the people. The minister had said the government and allied parties had decided to provide tear gas shells and rubber bullets to police personnel and Frontier Constabulary (FC) who would perform duties on the front line.

On the other hand, the Federal Minister for Planning Ahsan Iqbal earlier today (Wednesday) said that the doors were open for the PTI chief to hold talks with the incumbent government through President Dr Arif Alvi.

Talking to a news anchor on Express News, the minister had stated that the government is ready for talks between it and the PTI if the president wanted to play a role. He added that President Alvi had a constitutional position and should be active again.

Alluding to the establishment, Iqbal further said that it was “not a good tradition” to involve non-political organisations in politics. He maintained that the doors for talks were open if Imran wanted to have discussions while staying within the bounds of democracy.
