Fawad announces anti-inflation protests



The PTI leader, Fawad Chaudhry, on Saturday said party organisations across the country have been ordered to come out and protest against rising inflation and reiterated the party’s demand for snap elections.

Talking to the media in Islamabad along side Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rashid after a meeting of the PTI’s core committee, Chaudhry said that the panel decided to give the call to its local cells to stage demonstrations against rising prices due to the country’s current economic situation.

“If the government doesn’t move towards elections, then wait for a final call in these two weeks as consultation continues. We think workers should await a final call in September.”

Chaudhry said the core committee expressed concern about the rising level of street crime in major cities, adding that they had reached an unusually high level.
