ISLAMABAD: At least 50 workers of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) reaching Bani Gala, residence of Imran Khan, have been arrested, ARY News reported.
Punjab government has also issued orders for arrest of 470 workers. The orders were issued on recommendations of the Lahore Police.
Sources informed that police had also been asked to detain PTI workers before they reach Islamabad.
Earlier in a day, PTI chairman Imran Khan directed his party workers to uproot all barricades and impediments leading to Islamabad and reach Bani Gala tomorrow at all costs.
You have to reach here because we don’t see any law in this country. From here, we will head towards Islamabad on Tuesday (November 1), he told mediamen this morning.
He said people of Pakhtonkhwa must reach here tomorrow.
“We will gather people and move from here.” Khan reiterated his ‘admonition’ to police, saying “what you’re doing is illegal to detain people.”
The PTI chairman said days of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had been numbered, adding he was not going to be spared.
