KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan concluded his party protest in Karachi with an announcement that he will continue pressuring Nawaz Sharif.
Khan addressed a large number of people near Nursery area on Shahra-e-Faisal and charged up the crowd with slogans of “Go Nawaz Go”.
“We are coming to Lahore where people are ready to support us like Karachiites,” he said, adding that judicial commission would be formed, new election would be held and new Pakistan would come into being.
He thanked people of Karachi for what he said their support to his call for the protest and tendered an apology as well for inconvenience.
Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) Plan C, aimed at forcing an inquiry into alleged rigging in the May 2013 general election, partially paralyzed Karachi on Friday.
The Sindh government had said it would not allow a strike, stating earlier that government machinery would swing into action if anyone attempts to shut the city down by force.
PTI’s earlier shutdown in Faisalabad saw one PTI activist killed during violent clashes with Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) supporters and police.
Despite fear of possible disturbances, the protest demonstrations concluded largely peacefully with no major incidents reported in the port city.
