They also asked Karachiites to be ready for the next call of the protest and vowed that the campaign against the recent political development would be further expanded to other parts of Sindh.

Carrying party flags and chanting slogans, the protesters in cars, motorbikes and other mode of transport reached the venue of the protest, where many of them seen dancing to the tunes of party songs.

Addressing the protesters, PTI-Karachi president Bilal Ghaffar said that Karachiites would not forgive those who “betrayed” and sold out their votes” for their short-term petty gains.
