Two days after Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s announcement to lockdown the federal capital by the end of this month, National Assembly Speaker Sardar Ayaz Sadiq on Saturday made it clear that Islamabad will remain open on October 30.
Speaking to reporters after inaugurating a new Academic Block of Queen Mary College in Lahore, Ayaz Sadiq said the government will not allow anyone to hinder the process of development under China-Pakistan Economic corridor (CPEC).
“Islamabad will remain open Inshallah and conspiracies to avert foreign investments will be foiled,” he added.
Earlier on Thursday, PTI chief Imran Khan announced to lockdown Islamabad on October 30, demanding Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down or present himself for accountability on the issue of Panama Papers.
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf has been demanding the institutions to join its call for accountability of those ruling the country starting with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and his family ever since Panama Papers named the premier‘s daughter, Maryam Safdar and his two sons over owning at least three offshore companies.
