SC rejects PML-N led govt’s plea to stop Imran Khan’s Haqiqi Azadi March
The Supreme Court of Pakistan (SC) on Wednesday rejected the petition filed by PML-N led federal coalition government to stop the Haqiqi Azadi Marach of PTI’s Imran Khan.
In the contempt of court case against Imran Khan, the Additional Attorney General said that, “Imran Khan’s D Chowk call on May 25 was contempt of court.”
“On May 26, the rally was ended at Jinnah Avenue at 6 o’clock in the morning, Imran Khan passed the allotted place and came to the blue area to finish his March,” he added.
The Additional Attorney General requested court to stop Imran Khan’s long march, but the court rejected the federal government’s petition.
The court adjourned the hearing of the case till October 31 while seeking reply from Imran Khan in the contempt case.
Notably, PTI chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday announced that he will start a much-awaited ‘Haqiqi Azadi Marach’ against alleged imported government from Lahore’s Liberty Chowk to Islamabad on Friday (October 28).
“We will gather at Liberty Chowk at 11 o’clock in the morning, then the march towards Islamabad will start from there and I will lead the march,” Imran Khan said.
