“It is not difficult to identify the culprits because all TV channels showed them hurling stones at the truck in which Imran Khan was travelling and also at the buses and cars,” PPP Punjab President Manzoor Wattoo said here on Friday.
He said the culprits should be given an exemplary punishment.
Mr Wattoo said the politics of violence was both condemnable and contemptible and should not be resorted to due to its devastating consequences for politics.
He urged the government to honour its commitment of ensuring peace and security because it was its responsibility to provide security to the peaceful procession of the PTI. He said the failure to provide security would not absolve the government of its responsibility on any pretext.
