Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leaders joined protests on Friday organised against the government by religious parties all over Pakistan against the reopening of Nato supply routes.
PTI members directly participated in the protests and demonstrations of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JUD)and Difa-e-Pakistan (DPC) against the reopening of Nato supply routes.
The Multan protests were led by PTI leader Tariq Naeemullah. His presence attracted other members of PTI to the protests. They demanded that the government address the issue of drone attacks as they are disastrous for the sovereignty of Pakistan.
The demonstrations began after Friday prayers, which were marking Black Friday all over Pakistan.
“I will move with the long march in the interest of the country, as this is the only solution to topple this government,” said Tariq Naeemullah. “We want Imran Khan to join us in this long march to get rid of this government.”
