CM KP wanted capital’s invasion: Khawaja Asif


ISLAMABAD: Defence Minister Khawaja Asif on Monday said that Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervaiz Khattak wanted to bring armed masses for ‘invading the capital’ ahead of Nov 2 protest.


The Defence Minister took to Twitter to express his views on CM KP’s attempt to lead a convoy to Islamabad from the province. In his tweet, he termed it the “invasion of capital”.

Protesters and police clashed in Swabi shortly after the PTI convoy set off and police used tear gas shells against them.

The Defence Minister said that carrying arms and incitement to violence are clear manifestations of an invasion.
