The PTI chairman arrived in Lahore and visited the shrine of renowned Sufi saint Data Ganj Baksh where he paid his respects. He was also given a spectacular welcome outside the shrine by party activists.
Imran Khan was scheduled to tour several parts of Lahore and hold four corner meetings in different parts of the city including Bhati Gate, Mochi Gate, Shah Alam Gate and conclude at Sheranwala Gate.
