Web Desk October 14, 2014

ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has ordered the removal of containers from all roads in Islamabad except the ones on Constitution Avenue, Radio Pakistan reported on Tuesday.

In a directive to the Islamabad administration, the interior minister said steps should be taken to improve traffic flow in the federal capital.

He asked the administration to facilitate the residents in performing their day-to-day routine activities.

The containers had been placed for security of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek protesters who had started protests in the capital on August 15.

Earlier, the Supreme Court, while hearing a petition filed by Supreme Court Bar Association president had ordered the protesters to abandon their Constitution Avenue camps – whose presence has restricted public access to the court.
