LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan would attend the May 9 Islamabad rally, which was earlier cancelled following PTI leader’s hospitalization in Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital, the Party announced.
Imran Khan sustained serious injuries on his head and back after falling from a lifter during climbing up the stage installed for an election rally in Lahore on Tuesday.
TV footage showed him tumbling down along with three or four personal body guards on a pick-up truck. The PTI chief was seen bleeding when he was taken away by his party supporters to the city’s Liberty Hospital.
A PTI spokesman said the public gathering would be held as scheduled with the active participation of Imran Khan.
However, the spokesman said Imran Khan’s addressing the Islamabad rally was contingent upon his condition, which if the doctors did not deem as travel worthy then he might speak to the gathering via video-link.
