Authorities on Thursday suspended Metro Bus service in Lahore after activists of Tehreek-e-Labbaik blocked multiple roads across the city.

Routes that have been blocked include Data Darbar, Azadi Chowk, Chungi Amar Sidhu and Darogewala.

“We are being compelled to march towards Islamabad. The government is not implementing six points of Islamabad Agreement and the guarantors are not ready to fulfill their responsibility,” TL chief Khadim Rizvi told reporters at Data Darbar.

Rizvi's accomplice Pir Afzal said Tehreek followers would march towards Islamabad from across the country Friday if the government showed reluctance to address the agreement clauses within a week.

Since an anti-terror court had declared absconders Khadim Rizvi and other leaders, Pir Afzal said the cases against them were fake and the government lawyers were portraying their wrong image in the courts just to avoid implementation of agreement.

On November 6, 2017, workers of TL and activists of other religious groups staged a sit-in at the Faizabad Interchange in Islamabad against the amendments in the declarations of elected representatives, virtually paralyzing the twin cities for more than two weeks.

Police and Frontier Constabulary personnel had launched an operation against the protesters after the high court ordered the clearance of the bridge that connects the federal capital with Rawalpindi. Later, the TL workers left after striking an agreement with the government.
