PTI trying to hide wrongdoings: Interior Minister

Speaking in Geo News show Naya Pakistan, Federal Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah commented on PTI’s plans to gather workers and supporters in Islamabad.

“They are allowed to gather at Parade Ground and were granted permission earlier as well,” the minister said, adding that the party is using the jalsa to hide its wrongdoings.

Talking about the party’s plan to attract crowds in the federal capital, the interior minister maintained that the government will not be threatened by the party.
