Pakistan: Capital braces for Azadi march as Pakistan celebrates independence

 

 

 

Rawalpindi, (Dawn): As Pakistan celebrates Independence Day today, activists and supporters of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tehrik remain determined to march toward the capital to protest against alleged rigging in the 2013 general elections.

It is uncertain how the day will unfold and the fear of violence persists as parts of the capital have been blocked off by containers and cellular services remain suspended there.

The developments come as the Lahore High Court has maintained that the two parties should not continue with the course and the government has begun taking steps to establish a judicial commission to investigate alleged malpractices in the 2013 polls.

Below is a round-up of the day’s political happenings
