ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan announced on Tuesday that the upcoming Friday would be marked as ‘Go Nawaz Go’ Day and a 'Day of Deliverance'.

Speaking to the participants of the Azadi March, Khan said he would continue the protest movement till Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resigns. He vowed that he would spend Eidul Azha protesting in the red zone.

“Today is the 34th day of the protest and there has been an increase in the participation of the masses,” he claimed.

Khan further said that he would burn his electricity bill on Friday to remind the rulers that they have doubled the power rates. His decision to do so comes after reports that the PTI Chairman had actually paid most of his bills since the civil disobedience movement was announced.

In the same speech, Imran alleged that PM Sharif was going to spend another 4 crore rupees on his US Trip.

“The Sharif brothers do not care for the masses. See the lifestyles of their children,” he said.

Imran also said that he would go to court tomorrow (Wednesday) to get arrested PTI workers released.

“The Constitution of Pakistan allows for peaceful protests. Why then have PTI workers been arrested?” he questioned.

“Police, which is supposed to assist the masses in getting justice, is instead working for the rulers and going against the law,” he claimed.
