PESHAWAR: Awami National Party leaders and workers on Wednesday demonstrated against PTI chairman Imran Khan for allegedly using indecent remarks against Pakhtuns.

ANP spokesperson MPA Samar Haroon Bilour, former MPA Yasin Khalil, Sana Gulzar Advocate, Sher Rehman, trade leader Mujabur Rehman and large number of workers gathered in front of the Peshawar Press Club to register their protest.

They said the verdict of the Election Commission of Pakistan in the foreign funding case against the PTI had proved that Imran Khan received prohibited funding from foreign nationals.

On the occasion, ANP leaders said Pakhtuns had respect for PTI and Imran Khan, but he totally disregarded their sympathies.

Ms Bilour said Imran Khan did not know the Pakhtun culture and tradition. She also criticised PTI government for what she said turning Peshawar, known to be the city of flowers, into heaps of garbage with poor cleanliness and sanitation system.
