LAHORE: Ijaz Chaudhry, the Pakistan Tehreek-i- Insaf’s focal person for the ‘court arrest’ campaign said that after the PTI chairman Imran Khan issued directions, party workers will begin the drive from Lahore.

He stated during a press conference that after Lahore, PTI workers in Peshawar will present themselves for court arrest. Several party officials, including Shah Farman, Mohammad Atif, Shahram Tarakai, and others, accompanied with him.

It would be a constitutional violation, he warned, if elections were not held in Punjab and KP within 90 days after the dissolution of both houses.

According to him, Pakistan has lost its eastern portion, which later became Bangladesh, as a result of constitutional violations.

To eradicate the threat of terrorism from the nation, it was essential to preserve the rule of law. He added we should stop “interventions of imperialist and foreign elements” in internal matters.

Numerous party members who had enrolled for a judicial arrest campaign also took an oath in front of him.

Senator Chaudhry stated that PTI leaders and volunteers will court arrest and that Punjab’s jails had a capacity of 64,000 detainees, but they currently housed 84,000 inmates. He added that he would visit Peshawar and Rawalpindi as well to begin the foundational work for “Jail Bharo Tehreek.”

According to Dr. Yasmin Rashid, the party has a record of volunteers who signed the ‘court arrest’ movement.
