PTI announces countrywide protest against govt on Feb 6

KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has announced to hold countrywide protest on February 6 against government policies – especially the move to privatize the Pakistan International Airlines, ARY News reported.

PTI head has strongly condemned the assault on protesting PIA workers today at Karachi airport, which left at least two workers dead and half-a-dozen injured.

He castigated the government for its move to privatize the national flag carrier. Khan warned that PTI protest could also transform into a dharna (sit-in).

Meanwhile, opposition parties have demanded formation of judicial commission to probe the incident. Pakistan People’s Party and PTI have been quite vocal against looming privatization of the PIA.

The protest of PIA employees turned violent today when they attempted to move towards Jinnah Terminal, which was opposed by the management. Subsequently Rangers and police were called to control the situation and that transformed into a clash as law enforcers used batons and water cannons to disband the protesters.
