Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan said on Friday that party's Raiwind march will be organised before Muharram at all costs, but a change in the schedule was possible.
"We have not yet issued a final date for the Raiwind siege but there will be a march followed by a procession, Imran told reporters in Bani Gala, Islamabad. "We will march towards Raiwind with or without the opposition parties and bring Lahore city to a standstill if we are stopped from protest."
Opposition parties, mainly PTI have called for a protest against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his alleged concealing of assets and having offshore companies.

Leaked documents from the Mossack Fonseca law firm in Panama in April showed several world leaders including the premier’s three children – sons, Hassan and Hussain, and his daughter, Maryam – owning at least three offshore holding companies registered in the British Virgin Islands.
Imran said the rulers were struggling to hide their corruption by file references against those bringing it to the fore.
"The PML-N used Punjab police against the innocent people of Model Town, Lahore," Imran said while referring to the deaths of 14 PAT workers on June 17, 2014.

He, however, made it clear that his party does not intend to 'siege "anyone's house", saying it has never done this before.
"If we were stopped from practicing our democratic right of protest, then it will have serious consequences such as a shutdown of the entire city," Imran cautioned.
PTI chairman reiterated that the premier was causing the institutions to become weak to hide his own corruption, while the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) does not pay heed to the Panama leaks probe demands.
