In a major move, Islamabad police have given strict directives to hotels and guest houses against hosting participants from PTI long march which is currently on its way toward the capital.
According to the details, Islamabad police issued a notice to hotels and guest house owners and asked them to not host long march participants. All the hotels and guest houses in Islamabad will be thoroughly checked on a daily basis. If anyone is found violating the orders the city police will take strict action.
The tough measure is an attempt to stop the PTI-long march from entering Islamabad. The government is taking all the necessary measures against the long marchers.

Thousands of people joined the PTI’s long march which began from Lahore’s Liberty Chowk yesterday (Friday, October 28, 2022) under the leadership of former prime minister and party Chairman Imran Khan to press the government to call early elections.
A thorough strategy has been developed to keep the federal capital peaceful and safeguard locals’ lives and possessions throughout the PTI’s long march.
Under the plan, the police, Rangers and Frontier Constabulary have been deployed in and around the federal capital. Over 13,000 personnel of the Islamabad Police, including 4,199 officials, 1,022 personnel from Sindh, 4,265 FC, and 3,600 Rangers would protect the city. As per the plan, two DIGs would command the force, while four SSPs, 11 SPs, 30 ASPs/DSPs, 60 inspectors, and 304 upper subordinates would be part of the fighting force.
In order to maintain law and order in the city, 616 teargas guns, 50,050 teargas shells, 611 guns of 12 bore, 36,700 rounds of 12 bore, 2,430 masks, 374 vehicles, 17 paper ball guns, 4,000 paper balls, 15,000 spray paints and 16 megaphones have been arranged.
If the mob managed to get past the security barriers and into the Red Zone, a state of emergency would be declared. In that case, drastic measures would be taken to repress the demonstrators.
