To protest against the judiciary for providing “blanket relief” to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, the ruling Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has geared up for a sit-in outside the Supreme Court on Monday.
Protesters, comprising workers and supporters of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), have already reached the federal capital with many making an entrance into the Red Zone, despite Section 144 still in effect in the federal capital.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the chief of PDM — a ruling alliance of 13 political parties, on Friday had announced to stage the sit-in outside the Supreme Court against Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Umar Ata Bandial for facilitating Khan.
The two leaders are seen standing on the stage with protestors gathered at the site.
According to the district administration, protesters entered into the Red Zone via the Serena intersection and pushed away the police and administration.
“Protesters were informed about the government’s orders on behalf of the administration,” the administration said.
Local administration and police have informed the interior ministry regarding the situation of the protest. “The district administration had decided to allow the PDM to protest, but subject to the approval of the interior ministry.”
