PTI Islamabad Jalsa: Imran Khan announces countrywide shutter down on Dec 16


PTI Islamabad Jalsa Live: Imran Khan set to unveil ‘plan C’

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) held a massive public gathering in Islamabad on Saturday, as a part of its efforts to pressurize the federal government to initiate investigation into alleged rigging in the 2013 general elections.

Imran Khan-led PTI has already been staging a sit-in in the federal capital since mid-August as well as holding rallies across the country in protest against the alleged rigging in 2013 general elections.

Thousands of PTI workers arrived at the Jalsa venue in Islamabad from across the country to attend the public gathering.

In a statement, the PTI leader Ejaz Chaudhry alleged that the PTI workers were being arrested and transport terminals were closed as the government was trying to sabotage today’s Jalsa.

The party workers and supporters arriving from far and wide faced some difficulty in reaching the venue due to the ongoing Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) countrywide strike against the killing of its Secretary General Sindh Dr Khalid Mahmood Soomro.
