Javed Hashmi backs out at the last moment

Javed Hashmi backs out at the last moment Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) President Javed Hashmi, abandoning the ongoing protest movement meant to topple the government, flew to Multan from Islamabad, moments after it was starting to gather momentum,.

Talking to media here, Hashmi asserted, “I am a part of the PTI and not at variance with anyone in the party,” adding that he served a sentence of seven long years in jail for the sake of democracy.

The democracy, he added, is part and parcel of his faith; hence, it is impossible of him to be a party to any undemocratic process.

Neither can I explore any vista other than democracy for the resolution of issues, he vowed.

“I always maintain connections with people of my circle in dire straits,” Hashmi retorted noncommittally in response to a query with regard to his surprise arrival here, however, he declared he would disclose his future strategy this evening after consultations with friends.
