KARACHI - Claiming that VIP culture has been ended in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Sunday vowed that roads would not be closed even for the prime minister’s protocol in the province.

“Despite the fact that I’m facing life threats, we can’t put life of the people in danger by leaving them waiting for hours at traffic signals in the name of our security protocols,” he said while speaking to media persons in Karachi.

Imran, who later left for airport without any VIP protocol, claimed his party government has eliminated ‘VIP culture’ in KP, and vowed that roads would not be closed even during the PM’s visit to the province.

Replying to a question about protest of some disgruntled party workers, Khan said the PTI activists vent their anger in the wake of nominations of office-bearers for upcoming intra-party polls. He also admitted mistakes in past elections in his party, and said “we have learnt a lesson.”

Earlier Imran Khan met enraged Karachi supporters and assured them not to repeat the mistakes in intra-party elections.

Talking about party elections, he said that the workers would elect their leaders by themselves. He said no mistakes would be repeated in this regard.
