HAVELIAN: Calling himself a 'dharna expert', Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday that a 'circus' took place in Islamabad in the name of Azadi March protest.

The PM said this while addressing the groundbreaking of the Hazara Motorway Phase II in Havelian.

Addressing the crowd, PM Imran said that the protesters could not even stay for a month in the capital as opposed to his party's infamous 2014 protest of 126 days.

PM Imran said that the opposition leaders have ulterior motives, which is why they resorted to dharna politics on containers.

PM Imran said that he has been wrought in a way that he will fight against mafia. 

He said the government will focus on spending more money on human development projects.

While referring to the conditionality for lifting the ban on Nawaz Sharif’s foreign travel, PM Imran said that there was only one piece of paper the government asked for. "Rs7 billion do not matter for the Sharifs, they can pay this much as tip only."

While criticising Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto, PM Imran said that as the PPP chairman calls himself liberal but he is not. “Bilawal is liberally corrupt,” said the prime minister.
