On Thursday, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party put an end to its sit-in at Karachi’s Numaish Chowrangi in response to an ultimatum issued to the government by Imran Khan, a former prime minister of Pakistan.
Imran Khan has given the federal government an ultimatum of six days to call new elections and dissolve the assembly of the provinces.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) began a sit-in protest on the Muhammad Ali Jinnah Road Friday evening in response to the government’s treatment of PTI workers who were tortured while traveling from Peshawar to Islamabad.
Following the conclusion of the sit-in, the traffic police said that M.A. Jinnah Road is now open to the flow of traffic.
Imran Khan, while addressing the participants of the “Azadi March” earlier in the day at Jinnah Avenue, stated that the government had tried every method to crush our march, that they had used teargas on peaceful protest, that they had raided our homes, and that they had violated the privacy of the homes.
According to Imran Khan, three PTI activists died in Karachi, while two other workers were thrown from Ravi Bridge and hundreds of other workers were detained. Imran Khan further stated that Karachi is the place where thousands of PTI employees were arrested.
In connection with the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party’s long march to Islamabad, the Sindh police initiated a crackdown against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) members and activists who were protesting at Karachi’s Numaish Chowrangi.
The leadership of the PTI Karachi branch declared that they would hold a sit-in at the Numaish Chowrangi in the city to demonstrate their opposition to the regime change in Pakistan.
As soon as PTI workers and activists, including female activists, arrived at Numaish Chowrangi to hold a sit-in in connection with the party’s Islamabad Azadi March, the police sprang into action and began arresting people.
