GUJRAT: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will resume its long march to Islamabad from Punjab’s Toba Tek Singh today (Friday) with the former federal minister leading the marchers.

PTI on Thursday resumed its long march from the same spot in Wazirabad where the party chief Imran Khan was injured during an attempted assassination.

PTI’s Haqeeqi Azadi march, which demanded early and fair elections, was brought to an abrupt halt after Imran was shot in the leg during a procession.

The former prime minister and several other PTI leaders were injured after a man opened fire near the PTI reception camp at Allahwala Chowk during party’s Haqeeqi Azadi march.

Taking to Twitter, PTI leader Faisal Javed Khan has said that party chairman Imran Khan will address his supporters via video link in Gujrat today.

“A large number of people are eager to welcome Imran,” he tweeted.

Asad Umer will lead the caravan from Toba Tek Singh. It will pass Jhang, Faisalabad, Jaranwala, Chiniot and other cities before reaching Rawalpindi.
