ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan called on the public on Thursday to take to the streets on Sunday (June 19) at 9 p.m. to stage a "peaceful demonstration" against rising inflation, which he blamed on a government "incapable of handling the economy."
Imran warned in a recorded video message that if the country "sat idly by," inflation would soar even higher in the coming days.
"I'm inviting the country to join me in a peaceful protest against inflation. I invite trade unions, professionals, doctors, engineers, clerks, and government employees to march " the ex-PM said.
He stated that he wanted to question the current rulers on why they "engaged in a conspiracy" when they were incapable of managing the economy and the country.
Imran stated that the nation recalls the incumbent government leaders' narrative when they were in opposition and used to criticize inflation. "Now everyone is confronted with reality," he said,
