Asks PTI not to hold Sunday public meeting

Amraiz Khan

The Lahore High Court on Thursday asked the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf not to hold a public meeting at Minar-e-Pakistan on Sunday.

The court was of the view that the party was not following the law. The judge slammed the party leadership saying that they were not planning their public gathering in Lahore. “PSL is going on and PTI should reschedule its rally,”he said. “For God’s sake, allow the people to live their routine lives,” the judge remarked.

The judge then asked the party leader to sit down with authorities and sort out the issue.

It is pertinent to mention here that former premier and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan had announced to hold a power show at Minar-e-Pakistan on Sunday.

LHC’s Justice Tariq Saleem Sheikh issued directives while hearing a petition filed by PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry seeking to stop the “atrocities” outside Zaman Park.

The Lahore High Court Wednesday stopped police operation at former premier Imran Khan’s Zaman Park residence till 10am (Thursday), putting a halt to day-long clashes that had erupted after police tried to arrest the PTI chairman in the Toshakhana case.
