Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has decided not to personally participate in public gatherings held during campaigns in by-elections for National Assembly (NA) seats, reports Geo News.

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) has scheduled the election for the NA by-polls in March.

PTI members had resigned from their NA seats following the no-confidence move that toppled Imran Khan from the premiership last April.



The decision of the PTI’s senior leadership that Imran will not physically appear at rallies was made keeping in mind threats to his life.

He alleged that he would be eliminated in an explosion or blast, and later the blame would be placed on the outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).

“After killing me, they will say that Imran was killed in a terrorist attack,” he alleged.

Khan was shot in the leg on December 3 in Wazirabad, while leading a protest march to Islamabad.
