Ch Nisar

ISLAMABAD – The Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has said on National Assembly’s floor that if Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s protest would be peaceful then city administration would assist them.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)’s leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan was speaking at National Assembly’s session on Thursday when gave the official stance over PTI’s May 11 protest.

However, Nisar also said that demonstration in front of high security zone must be reconsidered as it seemed not a sane act.

“We need to look at the means of demonstrations. The Election Tribunals and Supreme Court of Pakistan is looking at the matters of rigging,” he added.

Moreover, another federal minister of PML-N Khawaja Saad Rafique, who was also facing accusation of rigging by PTI, said on the floor “Only those constituency are being accused of having rigged elections where Imran Khan lost the polls. He wants to dictate the judiciary for favorable decisions which was not possible.”

Earlier, Imran Khan had vowed to bring down the PML-N government if his party workers were barred from participating in May 11 protest at D-Chown Islamabad.

Moreover, the leader of PTI Shafqat Mehmood said in an interview that PML-N government had started harassing his party workers, bus drivers and started blocking entrance points of the city.

However, the PML-N spokesman rejected these allegations and maintained that roads were already blocked due to the development projects. The PML-N spokesperson said further that only six points were blocked due to Rawalpindi-Islamabad Metro Bus Project and if PTI was so desperate to bring his supporters on May 11 then they can use the alternate routes.
