PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf (PTI) has devised a dangerous strategy to march into the Red Zone and Constitutional Avenue.

PTI sources have said that women and children will be included in the march towards areas guarded by riot police, paramilitary forces, containers and barbed wire.

K-P Minister Shaukat Yousafzai confirmed that women and children would march in the second row, right behind key PTI legislators and Imran Khan. The PTI Youth Wing would follow behind the women. When questioned about the inclusion of women and children, Yousafzai said the march would be peaceful, and the women and children were being placed in the centre for their safety.

Federal Minister for Safron Abdul Qadir Baloch has termed the PTI's plan "inhuman". He alleged that the PTI leadership was using the children and women as a human shield.

Speaking to media in front of Parliament House, Baloch said including women and children in a march - where violent clashes are expected - was unacceptable.

A PTI legislator on condition of anonymity said party members were clueless as to the logic behind Imran's decisions.

"He [Imran] is on his own. He doesn't listen to anyone and party leaders are really annoyed, but they don't know what to do".
