Islamabad: While the people and the media of Pakistan have not gotten over Tahirul Qadri's long march, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan announced on Friday that his party will hold the "biggest ever" protest which will "trump all other protests people have seen in the past."Speaking at a press conference in Islamabad, Khan said that he had kept his party members on standby for the protest, which is why, he said, he had earlier announced a 7-point agenda.

"Being a political party, we hold the right to lodge protests. About two million people in the United Kingdom took to the streets in order to protest the Iraq killings," said Khan.He said that there was a lot of pressure on him from his party members to join Minhajul Quran International chief Qadri's long march, however, he said that he told his followers to wait for the "right time".Khan said that he will lead the protest "only to get free and fair elections conducted in the country."

Responding to a question, the PTI chief said that there was "no question" of boycotting the elections, because "the upcoming elections are the most important throughout Pakistan's electoral history."While talking about a caretaker setup to be put in place, Khan said that all political parties should sit together to deliberate upon the issue and that the caretaker prime minister should be the one agreed upon by all the parties.However, he said that so far, no one had approached his party to discuss the caretaker setup.

IMRAN KHAN has made mistakes over last few years such as not participating last elections,taking in all old faces in PTI,not joking the latest long march.He sounds like he regrets it now.It may be too late IMRAN we now have seen your real face.




He is the Man with the Plan...
Had he joined Qadris March, Imran Khans vote bank would have increased by a great number.

Imran Khan is the only HOPE for PTI. We love him and we will elect him to be PM in the next elections.
