Islamabad authorities’ attempts to hinder PTI planned sit-in in the capital would be foiled, Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheik Rashid said he would “tear Section 144 into 144 pieces tomorrow.”
Sheikh Rashid further told media that, “Police conducted raid on my sister’s home; during PPP regime, the government arrested me but did not dare to raid on my family homes.”
Repeating Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s words, Rashid said, “Rawalpindi will be shut down on November 2, regardless. “From Chandi Chowk till Islamabad, individuals will turn out in the city,” the AML chief told correspondents on Thursday.

Challanging Islamabad High Court’s orders, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan on Thursday declared that the Islamabad challenge planned for November 2 will be held at any cost.
Talking to the media in Islamabad, the gathering boss said, “It is my lawful and protected right to hold a tranquil challenge and I will practice that privilege.”
