PESHAWAR - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and prime minister-in waiting Imran Khan arrived in Peshawar without security and protocol.
He had returned the security protocol offered to him by the government.
Prime minister-elect returned the VVIP protocol and left for Peshawar accompanied by only two cars. Imran Khan did not take any protocol even after reaching Peshawar.”
“He has instructed that there should be no protocol vehicles [accompanying him],” Fawad said, adding, that “the PM nominee has also asked not to step up the route for him.”
Earlier on Monday, the PTI chairman had expressed his annoyance over the VVIP protocol given to him as he travelled from Bani Gala to a private hotel in Islamabad.
It had been reported that Imran Khan said that “the practice of protocols and the government stepping up the route for the prime minister should be stopped”.
He had also asked the Islamabad police to take back “their additional protocol vehicles” as he does not want to disturb the routine of the people.
