ISLAMABAD:

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan will hold a press conference on Sunday, senior PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said.

The PTI leader said in a tweet that the party chief will address a press conference today, adding that it is hoped that the former prime minister will be allowed to go home from the hospital by this evening.

He furthered that the call for protest has been suspended today in view of Raiwind’s Ijtimah (prayer gathering).

“Imran Khan will hold a press conference today, it is hoped that he will be allowed to go home from the hospital by this evening. However, the doctors have not yet discharged him from the hospital. The call for protest has been suspended today in view of Raiwind’s Ijtimah,” he said in a tweet.

Earlier, the former prime minister had addressed the nation for the first time after he survived an assassination attempt on Friday.

During the address, the PTI chief has asked his supporters to continue protesting against the assassination attempt on him until those who plotted the attack resigned from their positions.

In a video message from the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital (SKMCH), Imran Khan said he knew beforehand about the plot to kill him either in Wazirabad or in Gujarat.

The deposed prime minister had sustained bullet wounds to his leg after a gunman opened fires on his container, as he led the PTI’s ‘Haqeeqi Azadi March’ in Wazirabad on Thursday. One person died in the incident, while several PTI leaders were injured.

Immediately after the shooting, Imran was taken to the SKMCH in Lahore. Dr Faisal Sultan, the chief executive officer of the hospital, said that the PTI chief was hit by four bullets to his leg.

Breaking his silence in his video address, the PTI chairman alleged that three people – Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, and a senior military officer, were behind the botched assassination attempt on his life.
