Sialkot, ANI. PTI supporters of Pakistan have come out on the streets for Imran Khan. The politics of Pakistan is hot these days. Imran Khan is doing processions in many places, and is demanding elections. According to local media, Pakistani officials fired tear gas shells and lathi-charged the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which has taken to the streets against the removal of Imran Khan’s government. Party workers were preparing for a rally in Sialkot on Saturday morning.
The Dawn newspaper quoted PTI’s tweets as saying that several party members, including leader Usman Dar, were detained ahead of the rally to be held later in the day.

Citing television footage, the Pakistani newspaper reported that police personnel were seen demolishing structures built for the rally, while clouds of tear gas were also seen in the footage.
According to District Police Officer (DPO) Hassan Iqbal, who was present at the rally site, the local Christian community had objected to holding a public meeting on the ground, saying it was their property.
Iqbal said, ‘As you know, we are standing right now on the basis that we belong to the Christian community. He had filed a writ (petition) in the High Court, stating that there should be no political rally on this ground. The court then directed the Sialkot Deputy Commissioner to hear both the sides and decide the matter.
On Friday, former Prime Minister Imran Khan demanded a date for the next general election in the country.
Addressing a power show in Attock on Thursday, Khan urged people to unite with PTI for a long march towards ‘Independent Pakistan’. As reported by Arya News, he declared that he is ready to face any consequences that come his way, whether he is killed or arrested.
Pakistan’s deposed prime minister said in his address to government employees, ‘If you can’t participate yourself for fear of losing your job then send your families.’
Deposed Prime Minister Imran Khan had earlier addressed the Mianwali rally, saying that nothing can stop the march of lakhs of citizens, even the newly-elected Prime Minister, PM Shahbaz Sharif. It is also likely that Imran Khan will be accused of using ‘filthy’ language against national institutions during public meetings.
In such a situation, it is clear that there can be a large-scale clash. Preparing for protests and long marches, the current Pakistan government may arrest hundreds of PTI leaders and activists to control the situation.
