ISLAMABAD: Artist Shafaat Ali, known for mimicking Premier Imran Khan, proved to be handy for the rescue authorities of Islamabad as he successfully convinced a man to climb down from a mobile phone signal tower.



Early in the morning, the man hailing from Sargodha climbed on the mobile phone signal tower in Blue Area, Islamabad, voicing the demand that he should be made the prime minister so he could improve the country's economy and repay its debts within six months.

When the rescue officials asked him to climb down, he insisted that he would only speak to the prime minister or the District Police Officer of Sargodha, otherwise he would jump down.
