Imran, Qadri leading anti-govt marches
PTI chief Imran Khan and another opposition party Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) led by cleric Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri are staging sit-in protest outside country’s parliament since over a month demand resignation of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and poll reforms.

Thousands of PTI and PAT workers including women and children are continuing their protest demonstration to press Nawaz Sharif to resign.
We set a new world record: Imran
While addressing party workers, Imran said they have established a world record by staging a sit-in for 45 consecutive days.
“PM Nawaz did PTI a favour by summoning a joint session of Parliament since it revealed the real faces of parliamentarians. The difference between Nawaz and me is that I built myself, I was not brought up by General Ziaul Haq,” said Imran and refuted claims that he has been staging a sit-in on ‘someone’s’ directions.
“I will keep on staging the sit-in till I get Nawaz Sharif’s resignation,” he vowed.
Meanwhile, PM Nawaz Sharif said the entire Parliament and the nation stands on one side while a handful of elements (referring to Imran Khan and cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri) stand on the other
“Those staging sit-ins are doing their work while the government will continue to function without any detraction,” he said.
