Rahbar Committee chairman Akram Durrani said that the government committee should listen to their demands.
He said that the government had listened to their demands.
“Imran Khan had said that he would resign if only 500 people ask him to do so. Bilawal Bhutto, Shehbaz Sharif and other leaders represent their parties. Our sit-in is against Imran Khan, not anyone else,” he said, while talking to the media.
He said that he had declared his assets before the Election Commission of Pakistan. “I will quit politics if a single asset is proved as mine,” he said.
