PAT decides against joining PTI’s Raiwind protest march

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) has decided not to join Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s  (PTI) Raiwind protest march on September 30.

“We were not consulted by PTI about their plan to protest in Raiwind,” senior PAT leader Khurram Nawaz Gandapuri told Samaa.

The PAT’s decision came just three days before the scheduled protest in Raiwind near residence of Sharif family.

The march is aimed at pressing the government for Panama Papers investigation against the Sharif Family.

However, sources say, mediators like Shaikh Rashid are still hopeful and making efforts for reconciliation between PAT and PTI – considered two political cousins.

Sources say the PAT is unlikely to reverse its decision.
