PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari will start the long march from Karachi and will reach the capital in 10 days.

According to the schedule, the long march will start from Karachi’s Mazar-e-Quaid on February 27.


The marchers’ will reach Multan on March 3, where they will be hosted by former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani.

The march will reach Lahore on March 6 . The last stop of the march will be Islamabad on March 8.

The PPP, however, has not disclosed the final venue where the participants will stay after reaching the capital from all over the country.

PPP office-bearer, on condition of anonymity, told Dawn that the leadership would decide the duration of the stay in Islamabad after seeing the response of the masses and assessing the situation. However, he said, many party leaders believed that the past history showed that indefinite sit-ins staged by political parties had never remained successful.
