ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf today filed an application in the Islamabad High Court to get permission for landing of Imran Khan through helicopter at Parade Ground in the federal capital on Nov 26 in connection with the long-march.
PTI maintained in its petition that due to security issues, Imran Khan wants to reach Islamabad via helicopter. After landing at Parade Ground, Khan would travel to Rawalpindi to lead the ‘haqeeqi azadi march’.
Importantly, PTI is staging the protest in Rawalpindi _ a city which falls in Punjab government’s jurisdiction.
Ex-PM and PTI chief Khan has urged the PTI supporters to reach Rawalpindi on Nov 26.
The party pleaded with the court to allow Imran’s aircraft landing at Parade Ground.
The court should also direct authorities that the PTI workers and supporters should not be harassed while traveling to garrison city, it maintained.
Earlier, Punjab Assembly Deputy Speaker and PTI District President, Wasiq Qayyum, penned down an application to the Rawalpindi deputy commissioner (DC) seeking permission for the demonstration.
