Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Saturday urged his supporters to try their best to attend Rawalpindi rally by 1pm, terming it ‘historic day for Pakistan’.

PTI, on its official Twitter handle, wrote: “If for any reason, you are unable to attend, you can play your role for Haqeeqi Azadi movement via donations”. 

Rallies from different parts of the country are travelling to Rawalpindi to resume party’s long march as Imran Khan wants to mount pressure on the government for fresh elections.

Yesterday, the Imran-led party received permission to hold a demonstration in Faizabad, Rawalpindi for the party's ‘Haqeeqi Azadi’ march slated to be held today. 

According to GNN reports, a 56-point permit has been issued by the Rawalpindi administration for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to hold a sit-in.

The notification has directed the Rawalpindi police to take care of all the security measures regarding the rally.

Protestors cannot chant any anti-state slogans or deliver speeches that are against constitutional offices, armed forces and the judiciary, read the notification.  

The notification warned that the party and the organisers could face legal proceedings in case of a violation of any of the stated guidelines, clarifying that PTI Chairman was allowed to only use the route directed by the party, Islamabad administration and security agencies.

PTI could not stay at Allama Iqbal Park after the sit-in, said notification, adding that traffic police have emphasized a full traffic plan to be followed.

The notification further added, “In case of any untoward incident or loss of life, rally administration would be held accountable”. It also refused to allow the use of drone cameras.

Moreover, former Prime Minister has been directed to refrain himself from using a sunroof car before and after the rally.

As per the official notification, the England cricket team would reach Rawalpindi soon, thus the site should be evacuated completely once the rally ended.

The copies of the notification have been sent to the concerned authorities.
