LAHORE:


Former Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) provincial organiser Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar said on Tuesday that the party would put up a spirited fight against the government’s anti-people policies with a nationwide protest slated to be observed on February 6.  Speaking to newsmen at his office, Sarwar said the PTI stood shoulder-to-shoulder with the public against the government’s anti-people policies. He said the party would stage mammoth protest demonstrations in Lahore and other major cities of the Punjab in line with the directions of PTI chairman Imran Khan. Sarwar said the government had been implementing its policy of privatisation in haste.  The former governor said holding the rulers accountable was a responsibility of the opposition. “The lions in power are subjecting the people to tyranny. We will not remain silent spectators,” he said. Sarwar said the rulers wanted to enrich their relatives by privatising state-owned enterprises. He said the PTI had been opposing the government’s anti-people policies in both, the national and the provincial assemblies. The former governor said the opposition had put forth a just demand by demanding relief for the people in the wake of rising utility prices.  The party’s central leadership had given the call for a nationwide protest for February 6 against what it called growing economic oppression and the privatisation of state-owned enterprises.
