According to sources, important leadership of Punjab was also summoned along with the central leaders of the PTI to attend the meeting. The meeting will decide the future strategy of the party in the wake of current political situation in the counter.
Earlier in the day, the PTI chairman Imran Khan said that Shahbaz Gill must be given right to defend himself. In his reaction to the arrest of PTI leader Shahbaz Gill on Tuesday, Imran Khan said that if Shahbaz Gill has committed any crime or violated any law then it is his fundamental right to defend himself and clarify his position.
The former prime minister slammed the arrest, asking “can such shameful acts take place in any democracy?” “This is an abduction not an arrest. Can such shameful acts take place in any democracy? Political workers treated as enemies. And all to make us accept a foreign-backed government of crooks,” Imran Khan tweeted.
