Pakistan’s Punjab government on Wednesday allowed Opposition leader Imran Khan to organise a rally of his party here on Sunday.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will not be refrained from holding a public gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore after the party submitted an application to the district coordination officer seeking permission, Geo news quoted Punjab’s provincial Law Minister Rana Mashhood as saying.
PTI Chief and cricketer-turned-politician Khan had last Sunday held an anti-government protest rally in Karachi to renew his demand for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to quit and fresh elections to end Pakistan’s political logjam that has paralysed the nation for over a month.
Khan along with fiery cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri’s Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) has been agitating outside the parliament building in Islamabad since August 14, demanding Sharif’s ouster.
