Furthermore he said that this was not the first time that the PML-N has resorted to violence against the PTI and another such incident occurred earlier this month in Vehari. According to details, a charged mob which was protesting against load shedding was directed to attack PTI Youth Wing’s office. PTI Youth Wing District and City Faisalabad Presidents; Zeeshan Babar and Atif Chaudhry along with other workers of the party were subjected to torture by the criminal elements of the PML-N. The mob decimated PTI Youth Wing’s office and law enforcement agencies failed to take prompt action.
He said that if the Punjab Administration would have taken action against criminal elements involved in previous violent attacks on PTI workers and offices, this incident could have been avoided. PML-N is directly responsible for such incidents as the Chief Minister is openly supporting violent protests against load shedding which are actually aimed at attacking political opponents.
Shafqat Mahmood has demanded that the Punjab Police should act immediately on the request submitted by PTI office bearers at Jhang Bazaar police station. He warned the PML-N that if it does not stop violent attacks on the PTI it will have to face the wrath of the people of Pakistan.
