Marking the 23rd anniversary of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Prime Minister Imran Khan reminisced over the struggles of his party saying it has been "the greatest of any party since independence".

The premier added that PTI has gone through three different phases and is now in the final phase of building "Pakistan on the principles of Riyasat-i-Madina - a society based on justice, compassion and the dignity of our human beings".
