Punjab authorities have blocked several roads in Lahore including entry and exit points of the city ahead of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)’s jalsa in Minar-e-Pakistan, set to be held today (Saturday) at 9pm.

With the help of containers and trucks, the roads have been blocked. According to details, police have also placed barricades on major Lahore roads including Ravi Bridge and Thokar Niaz Baig, the two major entry and exit points which lead to Minar-e-Pakistan.

In a tweet, City Traffic Police Lahore has given details about the closed roads and advised residents to use alternative routes.



In the early hours of Saturday, PTI Chairman Imran Khan called on his supporters in Lahore to attend the jalsa after Taraweeh prayers which he believes will “break all records”. 

“Everyone must assert their right as people of a free nation that won its independence and come to Minar-e- Pakistan,” he added. 

Earlier, the government gave a green signal to PTI to hold its powershow, however, the closure of roads has created problems for residents.
