–PTI gears up for public meeting regardless of district administration’s refusalLAHORE: The district administration on Monday refused to grant permission to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for its public meeting at Minar-e-Pakistan on April 29. The DC has also asked PTI Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) Shoaib Siddique to hold the public meeting at Nasir Bagh instead, which is a notified place for holding rallies and processions. While the fate of the rally at Minar-e-Pakistan hangs in the balance, it is worth mentioning that the PTI has decided to woo voters and celebrate permanent disqualification of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif through a musical concert and public rally on April 29. PTI Chairman Imran Khan will be reaching a week before the event to warm up the workers and leaders. Regardless of the refusal, PTI leaders headed by central Punjab President Abdul Aleem Khan on Monday visited Minar-e-Pakistan.
