Islamabad ‘Red Zone’ sealed ahead of PTI’s protest against ECP
Islamabad authorities have place containers at entry points of the capital city and sealed the red zone as the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is set to stage a peaceful protest against the Election Commission of Pakistan today (Thursday).
Protesters or any unrelated person will not be allowed to enter the red zone, while anti-rights force, Rangers, FC and police will be deployed in the red zone.
Only Margala Road will be open to enter the red zone.
On the other hand, on the protest call of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Election Commissioner Sindh sent an emergency letter to IG Sindh and asked for security.
While giving an interview to a private TV channel yesterday, PTI Chairman Imran Khan said that Election Commission would never bring the foreign funding case of PML-N and PPP.
Imran said, “We will protest peacefully in front of the Election Commission office, we will not go to Red zone,” adding that, “Chief Election Commissioner has insulted us by calling PTI, foreign funded.”
