ISLAMABAD – The Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has maintained that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan does not require my permission to hold a rally on November 30.
Nisar was speaking with press on Saturday after inaugurating the labor residence colony in Taxila when made the above statement.
“I am amazed that Imran took my name,” he said responding to Imran Khan’s statement that he does not require a permission from Chaudhry Nisat for November 30 rally in Islamabad. “There are concern rules, laws and department for this.”
However, he again sent a numb warning to PTI stating “Had we wanted we could have overcome the containers when they attacked the parliament in August. But let it be every clear that now PTI has to fulfill all demands. Otherwise law will take its own course.”
He accepted the fact that it was PTI’s right to hold a demonstration but he also said “There are rights of residents of Islamabad as well. They do not deserve blocked roads and passage ways. I assure the residents that no rally will be allowed in the city without fulfilling the requirements.”
He also revealed that PTI had made contact to seek the permission. “They have contacted and I am hopeful of settling this issue smoothly.”
Imran Khan had given a call of protest at D-Chowk in Islamabad on November 30 as a last resort before going to the next level of his anti-government movement.
