Imran vows to continue sit-in till PM resignation

ImranISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) head Imran Khan on Wednesday thanked Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) leader Allama Tahir-ul Qadri and his workers for staging a sit-in in Islamabad for 70 days.

Addressing the participants of Azadi March, Khan specially lauded PAT’s workers for courageously facing the worst police crackdown and teargas shelling.

He regretted that PAT had ended their sit-ins, saying there was good friendship between the workers of two parties.

“There was neither any London plan nor a third umpire,” he said. “I had raised my finger up towards the Almighty.”

He maintained that he would not end his sit-in at Islamabad. “I will not leave this container as long as I am alive,” he vowed.

“There is no way I am going to end this protest without getting the resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.” He said that it was a decisive moment and that new Pakistan would be established at every cost.

The PTI chief said that his presence at the sit-in would keep pressure on the government.
