During media talk, Sheikh Rasheed said the court was lenient with the Sharif family and Hudaibiya Paper Mills case will be tough for Nawaz Sharif. He said the future strategy will be made after his meeting with Tahir-ul-Qadri

The stage was prepared at Istanbul Chowk where seats have also been placed for participants. PAT had earlier assured that they will not violate the codes and stage a peaceful protest and traffic flow will remain unaffected. They promised to conclude the sit-in by 10 pm after PAT Chief Tahir-ul-Qadri’s address.

Leaders from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Awami Muslim League (AML) have also participated in the protest. Administration had offered PAT to transfer their protest at DC Road later on where they will provide foolproof security.

Earlier on Tuesday, Lahore High Court (LHC) had barred the party from staging protests on Mall Road of the provincial capital in the light of Punjab govt s decision.
