LAHORE: PML-N workers released 100 doves on Wednesday, as a gesture of peace towards PTI, ahead of the latter's march towards Raiwind a couple of days from now.
Ever since PTI chief Imran Khan announced his march towards Raiwind close to where Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's residence is located, tensions rose between both parties. Workers from the PML-N had threatened to stop PTI workers from laying siege to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's residence while Imran Khan threatened dire consequences if his party's workers were assaulted.
However, in a rare gesture of goodwill, PML-N workers in Lahore released 100 doves as a sign of friendship towards PTI and an obvious attempt to calm down rising escalations between both parties. PML-N MPA Waheed Gul said that protest was Imran Khan's democratic right and further added that workers loyal to Nawaz Sharif would exercise restraint.
