ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) president Javed Hashmi on Sunday addressed a press conference and called on the PTI chief Imran Khan to leave Parliament House.

Hashmi clarified the position on his differences with the party chief saying: “Imran Khan had assured the party of not moving ahead towards the Prime Minister House...until Shaikh Raheed brought a message with someone".

Imran then said that the situation required us to move forward, to which “I had differences”, Hashmi said.

He also said that the party was against the decision of moving towards the PM House.

Hashmi said he would rejoin his leader as soon as Imran would get the protesters out of Parliament House.
