The tension between the government and the PTI regarding the Azadi March still seems unresolved. No agreement has been initiated between the government and the PTI. Both PTI workers, including Hammad Azhar, Faisal Javed Khan and Imran Khan, and PML-N worker Marium Aurangzeb have refused to develop the deal.
Talks on Supreme Court directives between both sides proved futile. Large gatherings have headed towards Islamabad despite government restrictions. The confrontation between the PTI and the police in Lahore became the battlefield for a long time. Following government directives, the security forces were active and all measures were taken to stop the march. In Lahore, Batti Chowk police fired gas at the PTI worker to disperse the workers. Therefore, more than 200 PTI workers have been arrested in Lahore. In addition, the police also attacked and broke the car windshield of Yasmeen Rashid, an elderly man.
Imran Khan will lead the March; he said it will be the biggest march ever for “real freedom.” He also urged Pakistanis to come out of their homes and join the march. Imran Khan said: “All Pakistanis, women, children, families, youth, lawyers, retired army officers, everyone has to come out for true independence.”
