Blatantly speaking contrary to facts, CM Punjab Mohsin Naqvi said in the presser that his government didn’t stop anyone from conducting political activities, something he couldn’t defend when imposing section 144 for just one day in Lahore ahead of PTI’s planned rally from Zaman Park to Data Darbar.

PTI worker Zille Shah had lost his life while dozens of other workers including women were injured and arrested after day long clashes.

After a day, Zille Shah was dropped at Services Hospital Lahore and declared ‘dead at arrival’.
