ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has announced to hold its election campaign rally for the NA-246 constituency by-polls, scheduled for April 19, at Karachi’s Jinnah Ground, Express News reported.
Addressing the media outside a mosque in Azizabad, PTI candidate Imran Ismail said there is a 90% chance the party will hold the demonstration at the ground.
“Contesting elections is the right of every individual,” he said, adding that it does not matter who controls the land.
NA-246 and Jinnah Ground is thought to be a stronghold on the Muttahida Qaumi Movement.
Earlier, the PTI was reconsidering even holding a rally on account of narrow entry and exit points, which could cause problems for supporters.
On April 9, PTI chairman Imran Khan was in Karachi to kick-off the election campaign. He made a brief address to supporters at the Jinnah Ground, prior to which a clash erupted between PTI and MQM workers.
