On Friday, countrywide protests were held after an assassination attempt on PTI Chairman Imran Khan. On Thursday, Imran sustained an injury in Wazirabad, Gujranwala.
The incident came as PTI’s long march entered its seventh day. Imran had planned to spend the whole day in Wazirabad. His march, termed by the political party as ‘Haqeeqi Azadi’, has looked to build pressure on the coalition-led government to call early elections.
'Will give another call for long march'
In his first address after the assassination attempt on Thursday, he said he would give another call for a long march towards Islamabad as soon as he recovers from the bullet injuries.
“I will take to the streets as soon as I am discharged from the hospital, and lead the long march towards Islamabad,” Imran said as he spoke to the media from Shaukat Khanum hospital in Lahore, where he is currently getting treatment.
