On the other hand, Punjab Parks and Horticulture Authority (PHA) Director General (DG) Jawad Ahmad Qureshi also issued a clarification.
In a statement, Qureshi said that the authority denied all rumours pertaining to the ban on TikTokers in parks across Lahore.
He said that no notification in written has been issued to bar TikTokers and YouTubers from entering parks had been issued.
It was a day ago when news started to circulate that in wake of the Iqbal Greater Park TikToker harassment incident, the provincial government has barred TikTokers from entering parks.
