SIALKOT

PTI Central Punjab President Barrister Mansur Sarwar ruled out possibility of any political alliance between PTI and PML-Q for upcoming local bodies elections.

Talking to the party workers, he termed the impression propaganda against his party. He said that the PTI would protest at Nasir Bagh Lahore on December 22, 2013, adding that it would be a massive anti-government protest against sky-rocketing price hike in the country.

He said that the PTI was voice of the poor and striving to empower the poor after ending the decades-long political monopoly of feudal lords in the country. He said that the present rulers had miserably failed to honour their promises and commitments.
