ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan told a "In case plan C doesn't work, I'll bring plan D," he said, adding that the party's sit-in on D-Chowk would continue until "justice is done".He said on Saturday that he would unveil ‘plan C' on Nov 30, claiming that it would make it very difficult for the PML-N government to manage its affairs.

Delivering his speech from atop his container on D-Chowk, Mr Khan said that ‘plan A' was the sit-in outside parliament, ‘plan B' was the series of countrywide rallies that he had addressed, and that on Sunday, he would present ‘plan C'.

On Saturday night, Mr Khan found himself addressing quite a sizeable group of men, women and children from atop his container. Police and the district administration had set up a perimeter around the area where the rally would take place.

Walk through gates beeped as people began streaming in to the site of the public meeting on the eve of Nov 30.

However, it was unclear how most people planned to spend the night at the venue, given the bitter cold of Islamabad and the absence of campfires around the site.

Atop the stage, Mr Khan was joined by a whole host of PTI leaders, including Lord Nazir - who is also expected to address the rally on Sunday

Imran Khan lashed out at Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif over remarks he made during an address in Havelian, saying that, "Nawaz Sharif inaugurated a road in KP for the sake of publicity."

He also said that both Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif spent taxpayer money on their personal publicity.

"Last year, they spent Rs10 billion on advertisements. After the sit-ins began in August, they released Rs3 billion per month for advertisements in order to influence newspapers", he claimed.

"In his speech, Nawaz Sharif announced that he will build bridges, roads and other buildings in KP, but he doesn't know that a nation cannot be built like this," he said, adding that "If the criteria for nation building is constructing infrastructure, then it is better to make Malik Riaz the prime minister".

He said alleged that the ruling party simply wanted to make money off the poor of Pakistan. "They want to make you their slaves," he bellowed. "In August, they employed brutal force against peaceful protesters… but we will begin the process of their accountability very soon."

Mr Khan also took the credit for the upcoming price drop in petrol prices, saying that, "It happened thanks to the sit-in, not because of Asif Ali Zardari's opposition," he said pointedly.

Mr Khan is also expected to spend the night in his container.

"This is real change," he said, adding that the prices of electricity and gas would also have skyrocketed if we did not hold this sit-in.
