‘Millions’ of people to attend Rawalpindi rally on Nov 26: Fawad
PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry has claimed that approximately 30,000 to 40,000 people will be reaching Rawalpindi by November 25, a day before party chairman Imran Khan will lead a rally in the city.

“And on Saturday, a gathering of millions of people will be held where Imran Khan will reveal the way forward,” he said.
Imran’s politics to end with new army chief’s appointment: Saeed Ghani
Sindh Labour and Human Resources Minister Saeed Ghani has claimed that the politics of former prime minister Imran Khan will come to an end when the new army chief is appointed.
Addressing a dinner reception at Karachi Gymkhana, the PPP leader said Imran’s political life was replete with U-turns and there was a possibility of Imran’s long march taking one before reaching Rawalpindi on November 26.
He lamented that the PIT chairman had been pushing the country to the verge of utter destruction through his anti-state politics.
The minister also recalled that the Inter-Services Public Relations had earlier made it clear that the incumbent army chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa wouldn’t seek any further extension in service.
“We all believe in the concept of the charter of the economy but it is unfortunate that Imran doesn’t care about the economy of the country,” Ghani said, urging the business community to convince the PTI chief to sign the proposed charter of the economy.
PTI long march’s ‘fake status’ disclosed before people: Sharjeel Memon
Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon has said the PTI’s “fake long march” has become ineffective and its “fake status” has been disclosed before the people.
He said the “chaos spread by [PTI Chairman] Imran Khan in the country” will conclude at the end of the current week.
Memon said that PTI ally Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi had also admitted to the long march’s end.
He said that Imran had given “big surprises” to the nation in the form of “theft of watches, theft of wheat, theft of sugar and money laundering”. “What big surprise will Imran Khan give now on November 26?” Memon questioned.
PTI approaches IHC for permission to use helicopter during Nov 26 rally
The PTI has filed a petition in the Islamabad High Court seeking permission to use a helicopter for the landing of former premier Imran Khan at the Parade Ground on November 26.
Imran is expected to lead supporters in the party’s long march resuming on Friday in Rawalpindi.
In a request submitted in court today, a copy of which is available with Dawn.com, the PTI said that owing to security reasons, the party chief wanted to land in Islamabad via a helicopter and then head towards Rawalpindi.
It also prayed that the court should direct authorities against harassing PTI workers and supporters and they should be provided “specialised security” on Nov 26.
The petition will be heard by IHC Chief Justice Aamer Farooq on Wednesday.
