Govt not to allow PTI to lockdown Islamabad: Abid

Multan—Minister of State for Water and Power Abid Sher Ali said that the government would not allow Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to lock down Islamabad.
“Islamabad is not personal estate of the PTI. The government and administration of Islamabad will deal with the protestors as per law. “In the past, government had allowed the PTI to hold peaceful demonstration, but it backed out on their pledge. Now, nobody will be allowed to paralyse the state machinery, lock schools or markets,” Abid Sher Ali said it during a media talk here on Saturday.
The state is well aware of its responsibilities and it will not allow anyone to take the law into his hands. The entire Pakistan will remain open on Nov 2, he added. The issue of Panama papers is in the Supreme Court and the PTI should present its viewpoint before the court. Abid Sher said that the SC had constituted a larger bench for hearing of Panama Papers issue.
He said that PTI’s agitational politics was meant to put pressure on courts. “We have asked the opposition to bring the accountability bill jointly but the PTI leaders are not interested as they themselves are thieves,” Abid Sher added.
He alleged that Aleem Khan was the ringleader of land grabbers in Lahore. Jahangir Tareen is the son of a police official. He asked as to how Jahangir Tareen became a billionaire.—APP
