PTI’s Nov 2 ‘lockdown’ changed to ‘thanksgiving’ rally in Islamabad

imran-khannews54s5sf5665Pivoting from protest to peaceful celebration, the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday said its November 2 lockdown will instead be marked as a day of thanksgiving in Islamabad.

Addressing a press conference outside Bani Gala, chairman Imran Khan thanked those who were part of his struggle against corruption.

“Go home and rest,” Khan told supporters, “You have to return to Islamabad tomorrow to celebrate thanksgiving at Parade Ground.”

“I am elated that the investigation into Nawaz Sharif’s [alleged corruption] will begin day after tomorrow.”

Khan was referring to the Supreme Court’s decision taken early today, where it announced the formation of a judicial commission to probe the allegations against the Sharif family in the Panama Papers.
