Earlier, there were reports the government has granted ‘conditional permission’ to PTI to hold its foundation day rally at F-9 Park on April 24, a day after Imran Khan and Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan had a brief meeting while travelling to London via the same flight from Lahore.
The decision to grant the permission for rally was taken at a high level meeting at the Interior Ministry, according to Geo News.
Imran Khan on Thursday confirmed he had a meeting with Nisar Ali Khan on the plane en route to London and the minister had reservations about the PTI’s rally at the F-9 Park in Islamabad.
Khan said he told the interior minister that his party had no plan to enter the Red Zone and it would be only a day-long celebration.
