He has been treated at Shaukat Khanum Hospital, owned by Khan’s charitable organisation. Doctors have advised him to take rest for four to six weeks.
Khan had announced the resumption of the long march on Tuesday, but later the party changed its decision and decided to start the march from Thursday. March will reach Rawalpindi in 10 to 14 days and Khan will join it there.
Punjab’s leader and health minister Dr. Yasmin Rashid said on Wednesday, “PTI vice-president and former foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi will lead the march from Wazirabad at 2 pm (local time) on Thursday.” “The Long March will resume with prayers for those killed and injured in the firing,” he said. Khan has been demanding a general election in Pakistan since he was removed from the post of Prime Minister after a no-confidence motion was passed in the National Assembly in April this year.
For this demand, he has taken out a long march. However, the federal government led by Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif is currently opposed to holding elections. The term of the current National Assembly will end in August 2023.
