ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is still indecisive about the final destination of its long march, even the due date to assemble in Rawalpindi is just a couple of days away.

A high alert in Rawalpindi and scheduled Test match between Pakistan and England at the Rawalpindi cricket Stadium have put the PTI leadership in doubts, as well as the local administration.

PTI long march is due to reach Rawalpindi on November 26 (Saturday). Sources said that all Punjab government resources have also been utilized to mobilize party workers but the response for PTI leadership is not ‘encouraging’.

On Wednesday, media reported that PTI Chief Imran Khan had assured the British High Commissioner Christian Turner and chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ramiz Raja that his party’s long march will not interfere with the first cricket Test between Pakistan and England, starting on December 1.

On Wednesday, PTI General Secretary Asad Umar called on the citizens of Rawalpindi to gear up for Imran's arrival on November 26.

"Pindi, get ready! Kaptaan is coming on Nov 26 along with the rest of the country," he said in his tweet.

On the other hand, temporary residential tents have been installed at Shamsabad across Murree Road to accommodate long march’s participants.
