PTI cancels Oct 29 rally; Nov 2 sit-in as per schedule

PTI RALLY KHI 28-10

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has cancelled its rally scheduled for October 29 (Saturday). The party will now hold its planned November 2 sit-in at Islamabad’s Parade Ground.

According to our correspondent, the Insaf Lawyers’ Forum — the lawyers’ body of the PTI — gave the Islamabad High Court (IHC) an undertaking on Friday that the party would hold its planned Nov 2 protest at the Parade Ground.

PTI leaders also confirmed it.

PTI chairman Imran Khan said at a press conference Friday evening that his party might extend the protest to D-Chowk.

Reports said barricades around Sheikh Rashid’s Lal Haveli in Rawalpindi have been removed; however, containers on roads leading to Imran Khan’s Bani Gala residence are still there.

Section-144, that prohibits gathering of five or more than five people, has been enforced in Islamabad and Rawalpindi for two months.

The IHC again ordered the district administration and police not to block the capital’s entrance by putting containers on roads and to avoid harassing PTI workers.

Yesterday, police clashed with workers of PTI and Awami Muslim League in Rawalpindi and Islamabad, arresting dozens ahead of a planned protest by Imran Khan aimed at unseating the government.

Police charged stone-throwing protesters with batons and fired tear gas at the supporters, who had come out onto the streets.

Authorities used shipping containers to block major roads leading from Rawalpindi to Islamabad, where Khan has vowed to lead a demonstration on November 2 to demand Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif step down over revelations made in the Panama Papers that his family have offshore bank accounts. – Samaa
