ISLAMABAD: In order to tempt Pakistan Tehrek-i-Insaf to quit their long-march, the capital police have began issuing threats to PTI leaders as said by the party leaders.
“I received a call this morning from the Special Branch (of police) asking me to shift my family form my house by 5pm for I could be put under house arrest anytime,” shireen Mazari, a senior leader and information secretary of the PTI, revealed in a press conference.
According to her, the person introduced himself after the name as Saqlain Bajwa.
“How can I push out my family from my house, and why should I,” she asked, adding, “I am not the only one who received the call. Naeemul Haq, staff officer to PTI Chief Imran Khan, also received a similar call.”
At a question, she said that the party has already decided not to seek permission from the Ministry of Interior or the District Administration for holding its Azadi March.
“We know about the threats to Imran Khan but he has never tried to hide behind bulletproof shields. There will be same security for workers and leaders,” she said.
Along with Mazari, PTI MNA form Islamabad Asad Umar simultaneously said in the same conference that the ruling party did not show any interest in resolving the problems and issues of the federal capital.
“The Tenancy Law is not being introduced in the federal capital. As far as the local government system (LGS) is concerned, the draft law shows that there will be no role for the residents of Islamabad in the governance,” he said.
