Pakistan’s former prime minister Imran Khan has vowed to defy a government ban on his planned march to Islamabad for a sit-in on Wednesday to press the administration to quit and call new elections.

Khan plans to create chaos with his protest march and will be stopped, Interior Minister Rana Sana Ullah Khan said in a briefing in Islamabad. However, Khan urged his supporters to take to the streets as planned.
