Long march participants had weapons, admits Imran Khan

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Monday admitted that the participants of the long march were carrying weapons with them.

In his interview with a private television channel, he said that the people participating in the long march were ready and they were carrying pistols.
"There was already hatred among the people due to raids carried out by the Punjab Police on PTI lawmakers  houses a day before the march," said Khan, adding that "he was 100% sure that the situation would lead to chaos."

“The decision to continue with the march would have led to hatred against the police and the army and would have created further divisions in the country.”

The PTI chairman said, "We want to file a petition that whether the peaceful protest is their right or not. It will be the test of the Supreme Court whether the apex court removes reservations or not."

He said that the PTI would form two different strategies for the long march after the SC ruling. "We had started receiving the videos and the situation at D Chowk was not normal. Fearing bloodshed, I decided not to move ahead. However, we will come with full preparation this time," he maintained.

Imran Khan said that the Chinese investors are not dealt with properly when they visit Pakistan while the Chinese have several other countries to make their investment.
