They demanded that the affectee should be included as the main party in every process including the investigation of various matters of the Ring Road, land pricing and redesigning of the Ring Road.

Elected members of the Parliament from all constituencies should be involved in the investigation.

A case should be registered against former commissioner Rawalpindi Captain (R) Muhammad Mahmood and former land collector Tabish immediately and they should be arrested and all secrets should be revealed after investigating them on merit.

“Prime Minister Imran Khan took the notice of Ring Road multi billion rupees project and should ensure transparency in the probe of the matter,” they demanded.
