Former Pakistan left-arm bowler Wasim Akram will attend Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf's (PTI) ‘Huqooq-e-Karachi March’ planned for April 30.

"Just invited Wasim Akram. He will join Imran Khan in the Huqooq-e-Karachi March," PTI leader Ali Haider Zaidi said on Twitter.



Zaidi also confirmed to The Express Tribune that he had invited Akram to the march and the former cricketer will be participating alongside the party leaders to raise his voice for Karachi's rights.

Last week, PTI took to the streets to mobilise and invite the public for their grand rally, ‘Huqooq-e-Karachi March’, which is going to be led by the party’s chairperson Imran Khan.

PTI all set for Huqooq-e-Karachi March

The rally on April 21 was carried out from Insaf House to the Nursery bus stop. A large number of families, students and party workers joined the rally, shouting slogans against the bad governance in the city.

Joined by local leaders of the party, including MPA Samar Ali Khan, Dawa Khan Sabir and PTI General Secretary Sardar Aziz, PTI Karachi President Firdous Shamim Naqvi said the metropolitan city has been turned into a mess by the government. Whether it is the local, provincial or federal governments, all of them have failed to deliver to the city that earns them most of the revenue, Naqvi said.

We have been raising our voice about solid waste disposal, scarcity of water, load-shedding and urgent need of a mass transit system for the city but it seems the government does not pay any more attention to our protests, Naqvi said, citing it as the reason for taking to the streets to spread their message to the public.
