PTI jail bharo tehreek enters third day


Leaders and workers of the Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) Rawalpindi chapter volunteered their arrest as the party’s ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’ for Haqeeqi Azadi’ entered day 3 today.

After Lahore and Peshawar, the campaign reached Rawalpindi, where PTI leaders Fayaz ul Hassan Chohan, Sadaqat Abbasi and Zulfi Bukhari voluntarily surrendered themselves to police.

The movement kicked off on Wednesday from Lahore where core leadership from Punjab, including Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Asad Umar, Senator Azam Khan Swati, and Omar Sarfaraz Cheema gave court arrests.

The ‘court arrest’ drive was launched in protest over “violations of the fundamental rights”, “abuse of the Constitution”, “unprecedented inflation” and “economic meltdown”.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan lauded PTI’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) leadership for a massive turnout in ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’.

The former prime minister Imran Khan in his tweet congratulated the KP PTI parliamentarians for leading the ‘Jail Bharo Tehreek’ from the front.

He wrote, “Today was a massive turnout led by PTI’s KP leadership for the Jail Bharo Tehreek.
