Speaking to the protesters at Shanghai Chowk, Chungi Amarsidhu, Punjab JI emir Javed Kasuri was quoted as saying by the news portal that the people of Balochistan were staging a sit-in at Gwadar for the last 27 days but the rulers were turning a deaf ear to their demands for basic rights.

He said PM Imran Khan would talk against corruption but could not detail the steps taken so far to eliminate the menace from the country.
