Earlier on Tuesday, Rana Sanaullah announced that the federal cabinet has decided not to permit the PTI to hold its planned long march to the capital, which is scheduled to take place on May 25 (tomorrow).

The constable was shot last night while a police raid was conducted in Lahore's Model Town Federal ministers and the PTI have traded blame over who was responsible.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's resources and personnel would be used to attack the federal government, according to the interior minister. During a rally, Imran Khan directed his party members to call people from other parties robbers or traitors. This is how he intends to spread confusion and division."

The PTI, however, wanted a peaceful protest rather than consider it a bloody march and to spread anarchy. "Had they not called it a bloody march and talked about spreading anarchy, we would not have stopped them." said Sanaullah.

Local authorities have taken measures to prevent long marchers from moving through various cities. In Rawalpindi, bus stops have been sealed and Faizabad Interchange has also been sealed. The GT Road, Taxila to Rawalpindi route is also blocked off.

While this is going on, the federal and state governments of Sindh and Punjab decided to issue an order absolute for the prohibition of gatherings under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (Power to issue orders at once for nuisance or danger).
