Imran’s country-wide election campaign schedule announced

  • PTI chief to address at nine different points in Lahore on July 18, 19

LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has announced the tentative schedule of party Chairman Imran Khan for the rigorous election campaign in different areas of Punjab, Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).

Imran will spend three days in Karachi, from where he is contesting for a National Assembly seat, during the election campaign and he is leaving for the city on Tuesday for his initial two-day visit. On July 22, Imran will be in Karachi again and would spend the whole there.

The PTI chief will also address public rallies in Swabi and Charsadda on July 5 while public rallies in Swat would be held on July 6. Imran would lead rallies in Jhelum and Gujrat on July 7 while he would run the campaign for his party in Abbottabad and Haripur on July 8.

Public rallies in the interior Sindh would be addressed by Imran Khan on July 9 and 10 and would leave for Rahim Yar Khan on July 11.

The PTI chairman would hold public gatherings in Gujranwala and Kasur on July 12 and would leave for Rawalpindi on the next day. Furthermore, he would address public gatherings in Peshawar and Mardan on July 14 while rallies in Sialkot and Faisalabad would be addressed on July 15.

According to the schedule, Imran would lead the campaign in Mianwali and Bannu, from where he is a candidate for National Assembly seats NA-95 and NA-35 respectively, on July 16.

Moreover, he would hold public rallies in Lahore on July 18 and 19 and would leave for Multan and Bahawalpur on July 20. PTI chairman would once again come to Lahore on July 21 and will address at nine different locations in the metropolitan from where he himself is contesting for one NA seat.

It is pertinent to mention here that Imran Khan’s focus is more on Lahore as it is the stronghold of Sharif brothers. The PTI could manage to secure only one NA and three provincial assembly seats from Lahore in last elections.

The election campaign of PTI would culminate in Islamabad on July 23 as the party has decided to hold a large public gathering in the federal capital just two days before the polling day. Imran himself is also a candidate from NA-53 Islamabad.
