ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan disclosed on Friday that his party had collected Rs50 million to carry on its protest demonstration through the Azadi Fund so far, Express News reported.
While speaking at D-Chowk in Islamabad, Imran claimed that the the fund, a donation campaign launched by the PTI to collect funds for its protest demonstrations, had received contributions not only from across Pakistan but also from overseas Pakistanis. The fund will specifically be helpful for the party’s massive sit-in scheduled for November 30 in the federal capital.
“I want to tell Asif Zardari that these funds are from the Pakistani masses,” said the PTI chairman. “Overseas Pakistanis are also collecting funds.”
Imran said a sea of people will take part in November 30’s PTI sit-in, adding that the “actual sit-in” will begin after that and the ongoing demonstration was just a “warm-up”.
PTI rally in Rahim Yar Khan
Meanwhile, PTI vice chairman announced that the party will hold a rally in Rahim Yar Khan on Sunday, November 9.
While the party’s district president Rana Raheel claims a permission has been granted to hold a rally at Khawaja Fareed College, local administration had earlier expressed reservations as the area houses the central jail and offices of intelligence agencies.
