PTI set to hold public gathering in Multan today
MULTAN (Web Desk) - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is going to hold a power show in Multan today (Friday) as part of the party’s efforts to win PP-196 seat in the city, local media reported.

PTI Chairman Imran Khan will address the public gathering at Technical Training College Multan. The party’s local office-bearers have sought a permit for today's gathering at the venue.

More that 30,000 chairs have been set at the venue. Meantime, fool proof security arrangements have been made.

The boundary wall of the sports ground has been hammered flat at two places so that additional exits and entrances can be put in place in order to ward off any chaos and resulting stampede.

It is worth noting here that five people lost their lives on October 10, 2014 when people tried to move out of  the venue.

The college ground is spacious enough to accommodate 50,000 people.

It should be mentioned here that the by-elections in PP-196 constituency will be held on May 21 in Multan.
