Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz MPA from Sargodha Sahibzada Ghulam Nizamuddin Sialwi has resigned in the wake of crackdown against protesters staging sit-in at Faizabad interchange.

Sialwi has asked all his followers to relinquish PML-N membership.

Another PML-N lawmaker Sheikh Waqas Akram has demanded government to release arrested workers with immediate effect. He has also threatened to relinquish the NA’s seat and demanded State Minister for Information Technology and Telecommunication Anusha Rehman to resign.

On the other hand, at least one policeman has been killed and over 100 protesters have been injured across country as protests continue unabated.
