GUJRANWALA: Former prime minister and Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Tuesday said that he will defeat Pakistan (PML-N) supremo Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif in his own constituency as the party resumed its ‘Haqeeqi Azadi March' on Day 5 from Gujranwala.
Addressing the charged participants of the march, in his first speech of the day, Imran Khan said "Nawaz Sharif, I challenge you, when you come back, I will beat you in your own constituency.” He also warned the former three-time premier that when he returns to Pakistan, "we will take you to Adiala jail from the airport".
Imran Khan also took aim at former president Asif Ali Zardari and said he should get ready for his arrival in Sindh. Adding the people of Sindh need freedom the most, Imran warned Zardari that he is coming after him in Sindh. Imran Khan also mocked Bilawal Bhutto Zardari saying that he could not learn Urdu in 14 years, adding that Bilawal speaks Urdu in accent of Englishmen “barash hota hai to pani ata hai”.
The PTI chairman reiterated that the time of true freedom has arrived and told the march participants that they will attain it through justice. He urged his supporters to follow him to Islamabad however possible, in any vehicle. “Come on foot if you must. This is the war for freedom, and everyone must make sacrifices,” he said.
"This system cannot continue and “we will have to change it," Imran told the march participants.” "When it is asked who will save Pakistan, the answer is not Imran Khan. It will be you who will save Pakistan and set it free," he told the people.
PTI resumed its long march journey towards Islamabad from Gujranwala as the party’s protest march entered the fifth day. It had halted the fourth day’s activities in Chand Da Qila, Gujranwala on Monday last.

“It is you who will save Pakistan and set it free”, Imran tells nation Imran has said the time for true freedom is here. We will fight for the supremacy of the law and justice”.
PTI on Tuesday released new schedule for its long march towards the federal capital Islamabad. PTI Hammad Azhar took to Twitter and shared image of the party’s new proposed schedule.
As per the new schedule, PTI’s long march would reach Jhelum on November 6 (Sunday) after passing through Gujranwala, Ghakar, Wazirabad, Gujrat, Lalamusa, Kharian, Sarai Alamgir and Jhelum.
PTI leader Fawad Chaudhary laughed at Nawaz Sharif’s statement that long marchers were no more than 2,000 and that the PTI’s demands should be given a deaf ear. “If we are so small in number then what is there for them to be scared of, anyway?” he questioned.
