LONDON: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) might call off its tsunami march scheduled for August 14 in Islamabad, leaders of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) claimed on Tuesday.
PTI chief Imran Khan had announced a million-man march to the federal capital demanding that the incumbent electoral process should be changed.
However, MQM leaders Tariq Javed, Qasim Ali and Mustafa Azizabadi - in a statement published on the party’s website - said that credible sources have informed them that Imran will withdraw his march call and that this announcement will be made soon.
Further, these senior leaders appealed to all parties to take steps with caution, keeping in view the critical situation of the country.
This statement was issued by the leaders after offering the Eid prayers.
On July 29, Imran ruled out negotiations with the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz after acknowledging that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had accepted his party’s demands, saying the offer had come too late.
“Now we’ll meet on August 14,” he emphatically said, while speaking exclusively with Express News from Bannu.
