PTI is amped up for its public rally today in Lahore, however, reports are emerging that the routes leading to the rally have been blocked by massive containers.

Pertinent to mention that the Lahore administration had earlier allowed PTI to hold its public rally which is in connection to the upcoming elections in Punjab.

According to the details, the Lahore administration allowed the political party to hold a public rally on the instructions of caretaker Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Mohsin Naqvi. In this regard, the district administration met with the PTI leaders and apprised it of the decision.

However, the reports of the routes leading to the rally allegedly being blocked by authorities in Lahore have sparked intense criticism.

“So now murderous Mohsin Naqvi and his police henchmen are busy blocking road access on the approved route of the PTI election rally. But, of course, Munshis of ECP have convenient blinkers on. Shameful,” PTI leader Shireen Mazari said.

“The fascist puppet caretaker chief minister are also enemies of democracy. Container after container from Zaman Park to the station. Shame is a small word for these fascists,” PTI MNA Aliya Hamza Malik said.

Interestingly, this would be the first rally that Imran Khan would lead in more than four months as he was mobilizing the party from his Zaman Park residence in Punjab’s capital. The PTI chief had been at home as he was “recovering” from an injury he sustained last year.

The rally was initially scheduled for Sunday, however, Imran Khan postponed the election rally until Monday (today) after the party failed to get relief either from the Election Commission or the Lahore High Court against the caretaker Punjab government’s order of imposing Section 144 in the provincial capital.
