Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers staged pro-test demonstrations at various points in the provincial capital on Friday against an assassination attempt on PTI Chairman Imran Khan in Wazirabad on Thursday.

The protesters held demonstrations at Thokar Niaz Baig, Kalma Chowk, Babu Sabu, Saggian bridge, Ferozpur Road, Bhatha Chowk, Faisal Chowk, Har-banspura, Shahdara, etc.

The protestors burnt tyres and blocked roads at Sag-gian bridge and outside Governor’s House.

However, the police prevented any untoward incident. The security of the city has been beefed up.

Protesters strongly condemned the assassination attempt on Imran Khan and chanted slogans against the Federal Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) -led Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) government.

The charged mob also burnt tyres and blocked roads for all types of traffic to register their protest.

A large number of citizens also gathered outside the Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital in Lahore where their beloved leader was admitted for medical treatment. They also chanted slogans against “the imported regime”.

Addressing the charged crowd, PTI leader Farrukh Habib said people had taken to the streets and were ready to give a strong answer to the imported rulers who were here to protect their looted money.

“Public has taken to the streets to save the country, while these imported rulers are trying to save their rule and corruption”, he added.
