PTI to enter Red Zone as planned: Hashmi

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Javed Hashmi said that protests had been staged in the Red Zone in the past and ‘we will certainly go there’ this time as well.

“We have made a final decision to enter into the Red Zone,” the veteran politician Javed Hashmi said.

“Protests had been staged in the Red Zone. We had also demonstrated there in the past and even this time around we have no misgivings about going in,” he added.

Hashmi assured that the PTI protesters will not create any disturbance but added that the government has made a big issue out of it.

Earlier, the federal government handed over the responsibility of the Red Zone’s security to the Pakistan army, the federal interior minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan announced at a news conference in Islamabad.

The interior minister reiterated invitation of the government to the PTI and the PAT for holding dialogue and said that he himself and the finance minister Ishaq Dar could go to them for this purpose as the government seriously wants to defuse the situation through peaceful means.
