Home Dept asks for route plan of PTI’s long march
The Punjab Home Department Friday contacted the leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and asked for the route plan of the long march in Rawalpindi and Jhelum, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
The home department wrote a letter to the PTI leadership and asked for the route plan after the security measures were not followed.
The Gujrat commissioner also contacted the organisers of the long march and asked them to deliver speeches while standing behind a bulletproof glass.
The PTI, however, provided the route plan of the long march neither to the Home Department nor to the commissioners of Rawalpindi and Gujarat.
“The security guidelines of the Home Department are not being followed in long march,” the Home Department said.
