ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf Chairman Imran Khan’s peace march to South Waziristan against US drone strikes will start from Islamabad on Saturday morning.

Over 30 anti-drone campaigners from the United States will take part in the march led by the PTI chief.

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.

Sources in the party said that in the event of authorities intervening and stopping the march at any place a gathering would be held there.

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