ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chair­man Imran Khan expressed the confidence on Thursday that the PTI’s public gathering in Gujrat on Friday would be a record breaking rally in the history of that city.

“The tsunami of the PTI will move towards Gujrat tomorrow and I am sure that attendance in the rally will break all records of public gatherings held so far by different parties in the [Gujrat] district,” Mr Khan said while addressing participants of the sit-in at D-Chowk on Thursday.

In his speech at the 71st of the dharna, Mr Khan promised that PTI if came to power would make pro-people policies.

A senior leader of the party’s Central Working Commit­tee told Dawn that it was difficult for PTI supporters from Islamabad and Rawalpindi to maintain presence at the sit-in continuously and that’s why the PTI leadership had decided to hold rallies in different cities in the country to which people were coming in large numbers.

“The local leadership of PTI from different districts is inviting Imran Khan to address public gatherings,” he said.
