PTI’s request to hold rally at Liaquat Bagh rejected

RAWALPINDI (PEN) : The Rawalpindi District Administration on Sunday rejected the request of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to hold a rally at Liaquat Bagh.

District Returning Officer and Deputy Commissioner Hasan Waqar Cheema rejected the PTI’s request to hold a rally at Liaquat Bagh, saying that it was not possible to allow the party to hold a rally in the city as it might affect the law and order situation.

Shahryar Riaz, the PTI candidate from NA-56 Rawalpindi, on the rejections of the application, said that it was a sign that they feared the people.

He said that the Pakistan Peoples Party and the Jamaat-e-Islami had held rallies at Liaquat Bagh.

Riaz said that on Feb 6, all the PTI candidates would take out an election rally which would make rounds around the entire city.
