ISLAMABAD: PTI leader Babar Awan called on Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad and discussed the overall political situation of the country.

Awan said the premier has reassured of the government’s commitment and said, “State comes first and then comes politics.”

“We will not let the state become weak. In the eyes of law, everyone is equal and the same law is applied to everyone.”

“The dharna is a violation of the Supreme Court’s decision. The protesters had conditional permission for the jalsa only and not to stage a dharna.”
