LAHORE: The Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, Lahore, on Friday held a protest march from Liberty Chowk to the Governor House against price hike, joblessness, loadshedding, inflated power bills and massive taxes.

The PTI office-bearers, workers and supporters were carrying party flags as the protest rally on cars and motorbikes went to the Governor House.

PTI central Punjab president Dr Yasmin Rashid, who led the rally, said the ‘imported’ government had failed to give any relief to the masses. She said the people were now compelled to sell their belongings to pay power bills.

She said ‘thieves and dacoits’ were being given relief. The corrupt mafia had come into power to clear their corruption cases. She said Imran Khan would soon give a call for a long march on Islamabad.

PTI Lahore president Sheikh Imtiaz and general secretary Zubair Niazi also addressed the rally.
