ISLAMABAD – The opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Monday submitted an application with the office of Deputy Commissioner (DC) Islamabad seeking provision of security and other facilities for its protest sit-in scheduled to be held on May 25 at the capital’s main Srinagar Highway. The Islamabad chapter of PTI through a letter also intimated the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Administration that the opposition party wanted to organize a gathering and sit-in on the said date.

It adds that former prime minister and Chairman PTI Imran Khan will lead the “Azaadi March/sit-in.”

The PTI informed the DC Islamabad that a large number of public including women & youth are expected to participate in the gathering for which stage and other festivity equipment are being installed at the venue.

“Therefore, I request you to please undertake necessary measures in terms of provision of venue, specialized security and others,” said the letter written by PTI’s Islamabad chapter general secretary Shahzad Gul.
