PTI holds workers convention despite ban on public gathering

Gujranwala: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Sunday held a workers convention at Dhobi Ghat ground, Gujranwala.

According to details, despite a ban on public gatherings in Gujranwala District, the ruling PTI arranged a gathering—clearing violating the NCOC and Punjab government’s orders.

The party’s Punjab President Ijaz Chaudhry will address the convention as PTI leadership did not seek permission for workers' convention, the district administration said.

According to the GNN reporter present on the ground, a complete violation of COVID SOPs in the convention is seen while few workers present in the ground are seen wearing masks.

Whereas no social distance between the chairs has been maintained by the organizers of the convention.

On the other hand, the event organizer Kaleemullah Khan said that SOPs will be taken care of in the gathering.

Earlier, on October 14, 2020, the violation of COVID-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) provided a ‘good justification’ to the PTI government to book over 400 workers of opposition parties, mainly Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N), in different parts of Punjab on Wednesday ahead of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) first public show on Oct 16 in Gujranwala.
