It is important to mention here that the Islamabad administration closed all exit routes of the Red Zone which left the lawmakers and media teams besieged there.

The administration sealed the only entrance and exit route of Red Zone at Margalla Road via placing containers.

A huge number of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supporters and workers finally reached Islamabad’s D-Chowk ahead of party chief Imran Khan’s arrival as a part of the ‘Haqeeqi Azadi March’.

The party workers and supporters are waiting now for Imran Khan who has reached Hasan Abdal and is still an hour’s drive away from the capital.

The development comes after PTI supporters and workers were arrested in different parts of the country, particularly in Islamabad.

A huge number of party workers headed to the capital today on party chief Imran Khan’s call but they were either detained by police and law enforcement agencies while many faced blockades that they themselves had to remove to reach their destination.

The situation aggravated but then the Supreme Court of Pakistan ordered the police to release all PTI workers and supporters and make all arrangements for PTI rally in Islamabad at their desired venue.
