SC directs PTI, PAT to vacate constitution avenue by tomorrow


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Supreme Court of Pakistan on Wednesday directed the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) to vacate the constitution avenue by tomorrow.

A five-member bench of the apex court headed by headed by Chief Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk gave the direction while hearing a petition regarding any possible extra-constitutional step in Islamabad.

The apex court observed that workers of both political parties bearing batons are scanning the government officials, lawyers and common people on the constitution avenue.

It directed for consultation among the protesting parties, petitioner, attorney general Salman Butt and the registrar of the apex court to vacate the constitution avenue.

During the hearing, Justice Anwar Zaheer Jamli observed it is regretful that today a crowd of 50,000 people is demanding resignation of the government and anyone who could assemble 200,000 people will again demand it which is unacceptable.

Justice Saqib Nisar observed that it is painful to hear that a leader has declared democracy as curse. He said the PAT leadership has admitted that they have no control over their workers, therefore placing of containers on roads provide justification.

Later, the court adjourned hearing of the case till Thursday (tomorrow).
