Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, was shot by a guy in Gujranwala, close to the party’s welcome camp, injuring him and alarming the adjacent long march participants.
According to Geo News, the former prime minister suffered injuries to his leg and was taken to a hospital for treatment; however, the hospital’s location remains unclear due to security concerns.
A large anti-government march is being led by the PTI chairman in the direction of Islamabad. He had said that the protest march will continue for a further 10 months until the election date was established.
The objective was to be at the federal capital by November 4 prior to this announcement. Later, it was changed to November 8–9, and then again, to November 11. Fawad Chaudhry, the head of the PTI, then said that the party will keep altering the dates in order to “wear the administration out.”
Since he was removed from office earlier this year by a resolution of no-confidence, the PTI chair is on his second march toward Islamabad.
Economic uncertainty in Pakistan has been exacerbated by political instability, with foreign rating agencies doubting the capacity of the present administration to continue challenging economic policies in the face of political pressure and impending elections.
