      pFormer premier Imran Khan, who was ousted in a confidence vote last month was blamed for mishandling the economy.p

      p“I will meet you in Islamabads at Srinagar Highway on 25th,” opposition leader Khan told a media conference on Sunday.p

      pI want all you to head out in such a manner that you reach there at 3 p.m., he added.p

      pKhan has been holding rallies around the country following his ouster, blaming the United States for conspiring against his government. p

      pPrime Minister Shehbaz Sharif‘s government is yet to implement economic policies such as curtailing costly energy subsidies, which were introduced by Khan’s government in his last days in power as he faced mounting pressure over rising inflation.p

      p“No matter how long it takes we will stay in Islamabad, until our demands of dissolution of assemblies and date of free and fair elections is announced,” Imran Khan flanked by his close associates told reporters.p

      p“I want people from all walks of life to take part in this march. This is not politics its a jihad against injustice,” Khan added. p

      pPakistan is in dire need of external financial support due to a widening current account deficit and foreign reserves falling below 10.5 billion, equivalent to less than two months of imports. [L3N2X12L5]p
