Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan is unhappy with his party’s top leaders for failing to mobilise supporters to participate in his long march to Islamabad, revealed Geo News anchorperson Shahzeb Khanzada in his programme ‘Aaj Shahzeb Khanzada Kay Sath’.

According to him, Khan thought that more people would turn up but people did not show up in Rawalpindi. Even his party leaders appeared to have gone missing in action.

On the contrary, sources say, PTI leaders argued that they were not given enough time to prepare by their leader. They even asked him to extend the date but Khan wanted to maintain an element of surprise for the government.


According to PTI leaders, except for Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s (KP) supporters, PTI does not have many supporters elsewhere who would brave the police or tear gas or the heat in an effort to try and reach Islamabad, the anchor revealed.

Moreover, the leaders thought that the long march would not be a good idea, and the announcement of a dharna (sit-up) would end up more of a problem for PTI. According to Khanzada, they are even unhappy with Khan’s six-day ultimatum to the government.

According to PTI sources, Imran Khan seems to be only listening to some people who are close to him, instead of politicians better adept at traditional constituency politics.
