According to sources, IG Islamabad also visited the allotment of Azadi March and reviewed the security arrangements.
The IG also met with the organizers of the Azadi March rally and assured them of providing foolproof security, sources said.

After arriving in Multan on Tuesday, the caravan made its way to Lahore.
A large crowd of supporters of Maulana Fazlur Rehman joined their leader and chanted slogans against the government.
Addressing his supporters, Fazl said JUI-F was going to Islamabad to announce that the incumbent rulers were fake.
“Government should resign before we reach Islamabad,” he said.
“This government does not have any mandate,” he said. “The mandate can be seen in this march,” the JUI-F chief added.
