Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Dr Yasmin Rashid has requested the Anti-Terrorism Court to give her relief for some days so that she could lead her election campaign, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Saturday.

“I should be allowed three days to campaign in the constituency”, Dr Yasmin Rashid requested the judge during proceedings.

Whatever happens, will be according to the law, the Judge remarked.

Yasmin Rashid claimed that Nawaz Sharif was not gathering a thousand people while they could gather millions of people.

Dr Yasmin Rashid alleged that Nawaz Sharif was behind in removing her banners from her constituency.
