Imran Khan`s sons to join `Azadi` march

Karachi: For the first time, the sons of cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan will join him at a political event planned by his party in Pakistan`s capital Islamabad, a media report said on Monday.

Sulaiman, 18 and Qasim, 15, are due to reach Pakistan on August 13 to join the Azadi (Independence) which has generated lot of hype as it is aimed at forcing the government to hold mid-term elections, The Express Tribune said.
Khan`s party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI), will organise the march on August 14.

Imran and his party have accused the ruling Pakistan Muslim League (N) of rigging the last elections and have called for electoral reforms and mid term elections.

Sulaiman and Qasim will be taking part in any rally or meeting of their father`s party for the first time.
His sons, with ex-wife Jemima Khan, have visited Pakistan in the past but have never taken part in any of PTI?s marches or sit-ins.

The two live in the United Kingdom with their mother.
In Pakistani politics, there is a tradition of families taking part in politics but this is the first time Imran has allowed his sons to get involved in his party affairs.

Imran has announced that he will stay in Islamabad till his demands are met, promising to sleep on the road with his supporters.
