Security at the Bani Gala residence of Prime Minister Imran Khan stopped Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Naeemul Haq from entering the building on Saturday.
In a video circulating on social media, Haq can be seen arguing with security guards who are not allowing him in. “I am here to take Imran Khan for the ceremony,” he told the security personnel, adding that security in charge Major Umar works under him.
“Don’t you know who I am?” asked PTI leader to the guards.
After the guards told him that they have received orders of not letting anyone in without clearance from the security in charge, Haq told them, he is the one who is handling the situation of Bani Gala.
After a brief argument, Haq sat in his car as guards allowed him to enter the residence.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan took oath as 22nd prime minister of Pakistan on Saturday.

The national anthem was followed by the recitation of the Holy Quran, whereafter President Mamnoon administered the oath, which was followed by signing of oath-taking documents and serving the refreshments.
During the oath-taking ceremony, Imran Khan fumbled a few times mainly due to difficult Urdu words.
After taking the oath, Prime Minister Imran Khan was given the guard of honour, following which he left for the Prime Minister House.
