The PAL chief said the country’s parliamentary system should be replaced with the presidential system and also accused the incumbent rulers of destroying the country’s economy.

“The present rulers are responsible for inflation. It is time for ‘public accountability' to get rid of incompetent rulers,” he added.

The PAL leader further said that all other options to fix the country’s system have failed and added that only a strong presidential system can solve the problems of the masses.

The rally included a large number of motorcycles and vehicles. The protesters dispersed peacefully after recording their protest.
