ISLAMABAD: The federal administration appears to be reluctant to allow the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to hold a ‘protest rally’ at Parade Ground on July 2.
In a statement, PTI Central Secretary General Asad Umar said that the ‘imported’ coalition government was afraid of former prime minister Imran Khan’s popularity among the people of Pakistan.
“The incumbent government is showing reluctance in allowing the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to hold jalsa at Parade Ground, Islamabad, on June 2,” the former planning minister said.
Asad Umar further said that the ‘imported’ rulers are afraid of elections and protest rallies. It is pertinent to mention here that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had formally begun preparations for ‘historic’ July 2 protest against rising inflation and country’s economic catastrophe.
