KARACHI: East District Deputy Commissioner will convene meeting within 48 hours to finalise plans for Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf rally in next 10 days, said Sindh High Court (SHC) adding that representatives of PTI should be present in meeting.

Court, in its written order declared that prohibiting rally is violation of petitioner’s fundamental rights. Specifically, court held that this restriction violates Articles 16 and 17 of Constitution. Administration’s refusal to permit rally goes against decisions of Supreme Court too, SHC said. Court issued written order over PTI petition to allow it to hold rally at Bagh-e-Jinnah Ground. City administration is not allowing party to stage public gathering, forcing it to take matter to court. Court expects all matters to be resolved within week without any discrimination.

SHC emphasised that there should be no delays or unjustified obstacles. If there is any threat in Bagh-e-Jinnah, rally can be held at an alternative location through consensus. Report on implementing court orders should be submitted within ten days, order stated.
