Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid while speaking with Geo News said that people still want to go to Murree but we will not let them.

“Nothing went wrong. People came in large numbers. We need to construct two or three Murree’s, three or four Nathia Gali’s. We need to understand that Murree alone cannot bear the weight of tourism,” said Rashid.

“Murree is not under me, it comes under Punjab, yet I sealed it yesterday around 5pm,” said the minister.
