RAWALPINDI: Awami Muslim League (AML) Chief and former interior minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed said on Sunday that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan’s ‘Haqeeqi Azadi’ long march has been halted temporarily and "is not over".

The former interior minister and the PTI's close ally made the comment in a tweet, adding that it has been three days since the assassination attempt on the PTI chief and a first information report (FIR) is yet to be registered.

He also maintained that there has been “no drop in the political temperature”.

“Judges are highly respected but not investigative. Incompetent unpopular government has failed completely,” he added.

Referring to the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority's (PEMRA) recent ban on Imran Khan’s live speeches and press conferences, which was lifted after hours by the federal government, Sheikh Rashid said that the PEMRA’s “failed censorship is a conspiracy against the media”.
