Ijaz Shah rejects allegations of arresting PDM workers


ISLAMABAD : Interior Minister Ijaz Shah on Friday rejected allegations of arresting Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) workers ahead of public gathering in Gujranwala.

Will act on the Prime Minister Imran Khan’s advise in this regard, he maintained.
