In a bid to pacify the journalists, the PTI vice-chairman promised to talk to his party chairman within 24 hours.PFUJ President Afzal Butt on Tuesday called on Imran to either reveal the names of the beneficiaries (journalists) or protest camps would be set up at press clubs across Pakistan and in front of the container of Imran Khan at the Parade Ground.The journalist fraternity demanded of the PTI chairman to name those journalists who had received funds from the government.
