LAHORE: The sudden disappearance of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Imran Khan from the party’s long march shortly after sunset and the party’s general secretary Asad Umar announcing that Khan had left for Lahore to attend a “very important meeting”, left the media and attendees to speculate, local media reported.
Earlier, the march had begun its second, but brief, stage from Shahdara with Khan continuing to punch two spy agency officers he called ‘Dirty Harry’, calling them ‘savages’, and demanding the leader of the army to investigate them. , reported Dawn.
PTI leaders Fawad Chaudhry and President of Punjab Yasmine Rachid denied that the party leader had left for a meeting and insisted it was a pre-decided SOP that the march would not take place in the dark for ‘security reasons’ .
Amid growing speculation about ongoing talks between the PTI leader and the ruling power following his sudden departure from the motorcade, Imran Khan himself has come out publicly to ‘deny’ the rumours.
In just a few words, he tweeted, “For all those rumors that spread about my meeting in Lahore, the reason we came back was because Lahore was closer and we had already decided not to move at night. The only demand I have had for six months is for a date for a fair and free early election. This will be the only requirement if talks are to take place,” Dawn reported.
