Imran Khan alters countrywide ‘shut down’ plan

Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf chief Imran Khan has altered his plan to “shut down” the country on December 16, after being criticised as the protest date coincided with the formal surrender of the army in Bangladesh.

Khan, who has been protesting since mid-August, had threatened to paralyze Pakistan on December 16 if Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif failed to initiate an impartial probe into the alleged rigging in 2013 general elections.

His decision drew flake from different circles as the date of protest coincided with the formal surrender of the army in Dhaka leading to creation of Bangladesh in 1971.
