LONDON: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Thursday said Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has no objection over PTI public meeting at F-9 Park in Islamabad on 24 April, after he ensured him of not heading towards red zone, Aaj News reported.
“It is our 20th Foundation Day on 24 April. We have decided to make historical celebration in the capital city,” he said while talking to media after arriving in London.
The interior minister had earlier adopted strict stance against public gatherings in Islamabad, specially at D-Chowk and F-9 Park.
Imran Khan and Nisar boarded the same PIA flight to reach United Kingdom, where PTI chief ensured him of not heading towards red zone on the foundation day. PTI leaders Jahangir Tareen and Aleem Khan were also present on the occasion.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had reached a day earlier in London for medical checkup, at a time when he is under fire for his family’s off-shore accounts exposed by the Panama Papers. This should also be noted that former president Asif Ali Zardari is also present in London and there are rumours that the PM would meet him over Panama Papers issue.
Imran said unless independent judiciary commission was formed under chief justice of Pakistan, nothing would be accepted.
“We do not want to take to streets, we will go for this option when justice is not done,” he said.
