Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has said that "Waziristan is Waziristan, whether North or South" (Urdu: وزیرستان وزیرستان ہوتا ہے، چاہے شمالی ہو یا جنوبی ہو) (Roman Urdu: Waziristan Waziristan hota hay, chahay Shumali ho ya Janubi ho). He announced his change of plan for a march towards already peaceful South Waziristan, instead of war-torn North Waziristan, in October.
Addressing a Press Conference, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan announced that the PTI along with hundred-thousand (100,000) people will march towards South Waziristan on 6th October.
Earlier in July, Imran Khan announced he was planning to lead thousands of people in a march to North Waziristan on 23th September to protest against US Drone Strikes. His Party Spokesman said they would take a hundred-thousand (100,000) strong rally to the Tribal Region, and that US and British anti-war and human rights campaigners, reporters and politicians were also likely to attend the march. "The rally will start from Bannu, a District of Khyber-Pakhtunkhuwa, and conclude near Mir Ali, a Tehsil of North Waziristan, with a historic speech by Imran Khan", said Dost Muhammad Mehsud, a Former Bureaucrat and a close aide of the PTI Chief.
