According to the plan, the march will start from Kashmir Highway and will be joined by activists from Rawalpindi, Attock and Mansehra at the motorway toll plaza.

It will make a brief stopover at Balkasar interchange.

The marchers will be received in Talagang, Rikhi, Mianwali, Kundian and Paharpur before reaching D. I. Khan for an overnight stay.

On Sunday morning, the march will start from Tank for Kotkai in South Waziristan via Jandola and Aspikai Raghzai.

They said the whole world would be informed through the march how destructive the drone strikes were.

Government must cooperate with PTI and other marchers instead holding them stop on their way. If the government or any other internal or external agencies tried to stop or intervene then the consequences would be in a high risk. The march in favour of our people as well as the country's sovereignty and against the enemies who are trying to destroy our country and make differences between our own people.
