ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers have blocked Express Highway and Abpara Chowk as protest of their worker’s death in Faisalabad.
Pakistan Tehreek-E-Insaf workers have blocked express highway of Islamabad and Abpara Chowk. This decision was taken in response to the death and criminal silence of government.
Earlier this morning clash erupted between workers of PTI and Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) who got into verbal confrontation when PML-N activists started throwing tomatoes and eggs at PTI workers in a bid to harass and disperse them. Police used water cannons in order to scatter away the protesters.
PTI workers from various areas scattered in the city in the form of groups. Ghanta Ghar is a junction of eight markets and shutting it down would paralyze business of the city.
Protest at Khurrianwala Bypass and Abdullah Pur Intersection would disconnect Faisalabad from routes leading to railway station and bus stands including the routes to Lahore, Jaranwala and other cities in the east blocking Kamal Pur Intersection would block roads to Jhang and southern Punjab whereas blockading road to Jhang would obstruct traffic heading towards the airport.
Situation got worst when fire was triggered on peaceful civilian by PML (N) supporter.
