QUETTA: Workers and supporters of the PTI staged a protest sit-in in here on Wednesday amid tight security.

They gathered on the lawns of Quetta Metropolitan Corporation and set up a protest sit-in camp to support the party’s march towards Islamabad.

Earlier, they marched through different roads of Quetta, raising slogans against the government and in support of PTI’s Islamabad march. Dr Munir Baloch, the Provincial President of PTI, along with other party leaders, led the march.
