Islamabad: Pakistan PM Imran Khan is horrified to see growing opposition against himself in Pakistan. His government has started preparing plans to deploy armed forces in Islamabad during the 'Independence March' to be held on 31 October. This march is being organized to 'topple the ruling PTI government'.
According to The Express Tribune, Maulana Fazal, chief of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), will march in the federal capital against the government led by Imran Khan. He has accused Imran of rigging and coming to power. All major opposition parties including the ANP, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan People's Party (PPP) have already announced their support for the protest march. According to sources, a meeting was held at Bani Gala, the private residence of PM Imran Khan, in which several options were discussed to counter the march on law and order situation.
The participants of the meeting decided that the government would hold talks with all opposition parties, including Fazal. But in the event of failure of negotiations, the Army will be called for protection of government buildings and important installations. However, the final decision to summon the armed forces will be made by the Ministry of Interior.
