حقیقی آزادی مارچ کے 5th دن کا آغاز صبح 12 بجے "چن دا قلعہ" سے ہوگا.
ہمارا پہلا پڑاؤ سپر ایشیا چوک ہوگا اور پھر شیراں والا باغ سے ہوتے ہوئے گوندلاں والا چوک پہنچ کر دن کے اختتام کی کوشش ہوگی.
مارچ میں ہر دن جوش میں اضافہ ہورہاہے اور اسی وجہ سے حکومت کی بوکھلاہٹ بھی بڑھتی جارہی ہے.— Musarrat Cheema (@MusarratCheema) November 1, 2022

Umar also slammed Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah for calling the people joining the party’s long march a “mob”.
