SAHIWAL: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) supporters, office-bearers, and party activists held two demonstrations at Mazoor Pulli and Jogi Chowk to show solidarity with Imran Khan late on Saturday. They chanted slogans against the US and opposition parties for being part of a funded conspiracy.

The protest demonstration was led by Shakeel Khan Niazi and Aftab Ahmed Khan, district PTI president.

On the other hand, local activists of the PPP, the JUI-F and the PML-N distributed sweets and did fireworks over the passage of a no-confidence motion against Imran Khan.

The police remained vigilant and allowed no rival political workers to clash at different locations in the city. Mr Niazi told Dawn said they will again administer a demonstration at Mazdoor Pulli on Sunday on the call of Imran Khan.

He said PTI workers will resist foreign-funded moves.
