Islamabad, Pakistan Oct 20, 2016, 08.40 AM (IST)

In a bid to thwart Imran Khan's attempt to lockdown Islamabad on November 2, Nawaz Sharif-led Pakistan government is planning to  put the cricketer-turned-politician under house arrest, local media reports suggested today. 

 

Responding to the reports of arrests of PTI leadership on Thursday,the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief said: "We are ready for everything, We have learned from the 2014 dharna  (protest) and the party is now well prepared to face any untoward situation."  

 

Khan had earlier invited the people, 'suppressed by corruption', to join the November 2 protest as he hits out at the Prime Minister over his Panama Papers links, the Express Tribune reported. 

 

According to media reports, a list of senior PTI leaders and party workers is being prepared to avert the protest. 

 

These key party leaders and workers will be taken into custody and arrested before November 2, the reports suggested.
