PAT activists, police clash outside Punjab Assembly
LAHORE: Activists of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) and police clashed outside Punjab Assembly when the PAT's rally was going past the assembly, ARY News reported Sunday.
The clash erupted over PAT workers carrying items for setting up a stage and police denying them permission.
Activists of PAT were passing by the assembly building carrying items to form a stage, when a few workers had an altercation with police.
Police initially denied them permission but later they allowed. The situation was soon brought under control from both the sides.
Reports are being received that police are misleading and quarrelling with PAT activists in Lahore over different pretexts.
PAT is holding protest rally in different cities including Lahore against rigging in general elections last year. Similar protest rally is taken out by Imran Khan-led PTI in Islamabad at D-Chowk today.
