Imran Khan says his party will quit all assemblies in Pakistan Ever since the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf decided to hold a meeting in Rawalpindi instead of Islamabad on November 26, there was talk about what Imran Khan would do next in this meeting.

From the beginning of Imran Khan's Real Azadi March, it seemed that now he and his party would finally reach Islamabad and camp and then remain there until the election date was met. A special reason for this was the 126-day dharna of Tehreek-e-Insaf against the Nawaz Sharif government in 2014 at D Chowk.

Before starting his 'True Freedom March', Imran Khan held rallies across the country and won a majority in the by-elections held during this period. Imran Khan, declaring himself the most popular political leader of the country on these results, has been demanding early elections from the government.

But what Imran Khan said on reaching Rawalpindi was probably not even in the imagination of many political experts. It is another matter that during this period, Tehreek-e-Insaaf also made several compromises.

At first, Tehreek-e-Insaf backed away from the announcement of its entry into Islamabad, after that the former ruling party could not even get the location of Faizabad and their gathering was pushed to the Sixth Road of Rawalpindi with strict conditions.

On reaching Rawalpindi, Imran Khan said in his speech, "We have taken a decision and have started leaving all the assemblies."

Addressing the participants of the Long March, he said that instead of destroying our country, it is better that we get out of this corrupt system and not be a part of this system, where these thieves are sitting and forgiving their cases worth billions of rupees every day.

Imran Khan told the participants that he is not going to Islamabad now because 'when millions of people go to Islamabad, no one can stop them but I am deciding not to go to Islamabad because I know it will cause disaster'.

The BBC spoke to political analysts and experts closely following the march on Imran Khan's announcement and decision.

Imran Khan had no way back and this announcement was the last card.

Speaking to the BBC, Farzana Ali, bureau chief of private TV channel Aaj News in Peshawar, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, said that Imran Khan had no way back and this announcement was the last card he played. .'

According to him, he also asked the former Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervez Khattak that what would happen if Rawalpindi took even one lakh people, in response he said that he also did not know why Imran Khan decided to go there. Doing that will be our decision.

According to Farzana Ali, Tehreek-e-Insaaf couldn't prolong its movement because funds are required for meetings, processions, and dharnas, while the leaders of Tehreek-e-Insaaf were now also seen complaining about the lack of funds.

According to senior analyst Sohail Waraich, Imran Khan's announcement is his first serious step. According to him, this option was available to Imran Khan from the first day but he did not use the option. According to Sohail Waraich, this is a very 'series threat' because instead of returning to the assembly, he is also resigning from the provincial assemblies.

"It means they refuse to reconcile with the system."

Journalist and analyst Asma Shirazi, who has a close eye on the politics of the military establishment, Imran Khan and Tehreek-e-Insaf, thinks that Imran Khan's announcement is face-saving because it is an announcement and not a decision. According to him, Imran Khan has said that we will consult.

It should be noted that Imran Khan while addressing the meeting of Tehreek-e-Insaaf in Rawalpindi said, ' I have spoken to the chief ministers (of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), I am also consulting with the parliamentary party, the announcement will be made in the coming days. We will do that on the day we are leaving all the assemblies.'

According to Asma Shirazi, Imran Khan thought that an 'event' should be created which will continue to be debated in the media, and thus Tehreek-e-Insaaf will get face-saving.

In the opinion of Sohail Waraich, it would have been better if Imran Khan would have returned to Islam, whatever the government was advising him to do, and, then he would have made electoral reforms, formed a caretaker government, and consulted on it. However, according to him, staying out of the assemblies will lead to anarchy.
