Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan has said he will continue to lead protests in Islamabad along with thousands of his supporters until Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif steps down.

Will Imran and his party manage to shake the government enough to consider some of their demands? Will the government send its emissaries to Imran? Or is PTI looking to reject dialogue with the government altogether?

How will Tahirul Qadri and activists of his Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) approach the situation?
