MALAKAND- PTI chief Imran Khan has claimed one million protesters will march on the federal capital against the government on November 2.

“You (Prime Minister) have only two options left; either quit the office or accept the Terms of References (TORs) that were accepted not only by the PTI but the entire opposition,” Imran Khan said while addressing a large public gathering in Malakand on Monday.

Commenting on reports that the government may try to stop the protesters, he said it was not possible for the rulers to arrest one million people who will come to the capital on November 2.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf plans to lock down the capital city on Nov 2 (Wednesday) in the wake of Panama Papers which mentioned offshore companies of ruling Sharif family.

“No police can arrest 1 million people, and they won’t have space in jails to imprison them,” the PTI chairman said.

“They (rulers) won’t have enough time to leave for Jeddah this time around,” he said in a reference to Sharif family’s departure to Saudi Arabia after Nawaz government was toppled by former army chief Gen (r) Pervez Musharraf in 1999.

“We will not go to jail, it will be you who will be hiding,” Imran said, reiterating that Nawaz Sharif was responsible for hindering the inquiry into the Panama leaks.
