“We received a letter from PTI MPA Arif Abbasi, seeking permission for a rally which was a violation of the code of conduct.”

Under the ECP directives, parliamentarians and other public office holders cannot visit any UC/ward.

“Imran Khan, an MNA from NA-56, should not visit the garrison city as it is a clear violation of the ECP directives,” PML-N metropolitan president Sardar Naseem told Dawn.

When contacted, PTI MPA Arif Abbasi said Imran Khan would visit the city on December 1 despite the ban.

“NA-56 is Imran Khan’s constituency and he will visit the area to listen to the problems of the people,” he added.
