Prime Minister Imran Khan directed on Wednesday Capital Development Authority (CDA) chairman to immediately visit the sit-in in Islamabad and assess what assistance can be provided to the participants of the Azadi March following the rain on Tuesday night.
The premier took to his Twitter handle and wrote, “I have directed the CDA Chairman to immediately visit the dharna site to assess what relief and assistance can be provided to the dharna participants with the onset of rain and changing weather conditions.”

The weather in the capital city has cooled down after rains and thunderstorm intensified on Tuesday. The protesters, however, refused to let rain or the biting cold dampen their resolve and are still adamant that their demand is met. Thousands of protesters have converged in the capital under the banner of the Azadi March, demanding that the prime minister resign.
