PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) “Ehtisab Rally”, which commenced from Zakori Bridge on Ring Road and travelled through Grand Trunk (GT) Road to Attock, disrupted the traffic in the provincial metropolis on Sunday and added to the sufferings of the ordinary commuters. The citizens faced traffic problems on Ring Road GT Road and other link roads of Peshawar. The slow movement and sometime blockades of the main roads by the PTI activists, headed by a number of members of the National Assembly (MNAs) and Members of the Provincial Assembly (MPAs) and other political leaders, added to the sufferings of the common people. One Fayaz, a resident of Peshawar city, said the commuters on Ring Road waited for hours to let the PTI rally pass. “I normally cover the distance from my home to the GT Road in 20-minutes, today it took me over an hour to reach the main road,” said the angry commuter. He added that politicians were immune to the woes of the common people. “They do not feel for us, the common people,” he lamented. He added that if the politicians of the PTI had any regard for the woes of the common people they would have arranged only a gathering at a spacious ground instead of taking out the rally to add to the miseries of the people. All the activists, from every corner of the province, gathered at Ring Road near Zakori Sharif Flyover, which was later also joined by the PTI chief Imran Khan. Before leaving for Attock, he addressed the party activists. Some of the passionate PTI workers had painted their faces with green and red colours, symbolising the party’s flag. Some of them had party flags in their hands, others had decorated their cars, motorcycles, vans, buses and rickshaws with flags. Chief Minister Pevez Khattak, District Nazim Peshawar Muhammad Asim Khan, Naib Nazim Qasim Ali Shah, and a number of PTI MPAs were present on the occasion. PTI activists had also arranged welcome points on the route of the rally to motivate the participants. As usual the loud music was there to keep the activists charged and motivated. Many people had just come to see the charismatic cricketer-turned politician Imran Khan..
