PESHAWAR - Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) disgruntled Member Provincial Assembly (MPA) Javed Nasim has announced to put-off his protest sit-in against the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister for his alleged indifferent attitude and corruption in the province.

Flanked by Deputy Speaker Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly Imtiaz Shahid Quershi, MPAs Shaukat Yousafzai and Yasin Khalil and party activists, Javid Nasim said that he presented his reservations and demands to the party jirga, which assured him of meeting his genuine demands.

“I am a staunch activist of PTI and have an affiliation with the party since long,” Javid Nasim said, adding every worker of the party has the right to raise voice about his/her genuine demands. The elected MPA from constituency PK-3, warned if his genuine demands were not accepted accordingly, then he would revise his decision of protest sit-in against the government in Hashtnagri Chowk Peshawar and all responsibility would be rested with the jirga.
