The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT), the two political parties staging anti-government protests for about three weeks for fresh elections here, are ready to shift to a new location, a minister said Thursday.
They are ready to vacate Constitution Avenue, where the parliament house and the Supreme Court are situated, for a new site D-Chowk, Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said, claiming that both the parties have agreed, Geo News reported.
The minister said the government had prepared it in response to the written demands of Imran Khan-led PTI and will hand it over to them.
The government's response to the verbal demands of Tahir-ul Qadri's PAT had also been prepared, he added.
