ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesay directed Capital Development Authority (CDA) to reach out to participants of an opposition sit-in affected by changing weather.

Taking to Twitter, PM Khan said he has asked CDA chief to immediately visit the dharna site.

“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,” Khan tweeted.

The PM’s reaction came a day after the Met Office informed that a strong westerly wave was likely to approach western parts of the country on Tuesday and likely to grip upper and central parts of the country from Tuesday night.

Under the influence of this weather system, widespread rain/wind- thunderstorm with snowfall over the hills is expected at all districts of Upper Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Islamabad, Gilgit Baltistan, Kashmir and at scattered places in Lower Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (D.I Khan, Laki Marwat, Bannu, Karak, Tank, Kurram, Kohat and Waziristan) from Tuesday (Night) to Friday.

Thousands of JUI-F workers have been camping in Islamabad in a bid to oust Prime Minister Imran Khan from power.
