‘Thief government; violated sanctity of party’s office’: Imran Khan’s party reacts to demolition of head office


NEW DELHI: Hours after Capital Development Authority (CDA) in Pakistan demolished a portion of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf‘s (PTI) office on Thursday citing “violation of building rules“, the party responded saying that the move is an “armed invasion and vandalism” by the “mandate thief government”.
Denying any illegal constructions on the PTI premises, party chairman Barrister Gohar Ali Khan said, “Even if there were encroachments, the CDA should have sent prior notice before the operation.”
PTI Islamabad criticised the move calling it a ” blind use of force “.
“Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf strongly condemns the invasion of the biggest political party of the country by the mandate thief government in the dark of night. Reiterating our commitment not to bow down to intimidation, lawlessness and blind use of force and not to give up in any way from the agenda of true freedom”, it said in a post on X.
“The mandate thief and his followers are shocked to see their end in front of their eyes. The illegal invasion of the central secretariat of Tehreek-e-Insaf is a reflection of the fear within them”, it added.

The CDA on Thursday that the move was a part of operation to remove illegal constructions.
The government organization stated that it has given notices to the PTI but to no avail. While the operation was underway, the party formed by former Prime Minister Imran Khan encouraged its members to report to the secretariat right away. The PTI claimed that the government started dismantling the office in a “illegal and unjust manner.”
