But Mr. Taha Hamza angrily inquired why they collected money for the hiring of the meeting hall two days back when they knew that they have certain principles/conditions that are supposed to be fulfilled by the guest and are not madr known to them as organizers untill the date of the activity.

Supporters of the aspirant insisted they are not going anywhere since they have paid for the hall two days ahead of the event and that they have brought a permit from the police.

As at the time the drama was ongoing between the supporters of the aspirant and management of the guest -in, armed police men and operatives of NSCDC have arrived the venue of the event to offer security as requested.

Eventually, the event took place within the premises of the guest-in even though, the management denied the politician and his supporters access to the meeting hall.
