ISLAMABAD: Pakistani opposition leaders have renewed their demands for Prime Minister Imran Khan to step down, terming his government illegitimate and incompetent, as thousands gathered at an anti-government protest in the capital Islamabad.

Opposition leaders delivered fiery speeches against the PTI government on Thursday, giving PM Imran Khan a two-day ultimatum to resign.

Addressing supporters on the second day of the protest in Islamabad on Friday, leader of the right-wing JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman has given Prime Minister Imran two days to resign and go home.

“We cannot show more patience,” he said. “We are giving two days’ time otherwise the people have the capability to enter the PM House by force and arrest the prime minister,” he added.

In the same vein, the JUI-F chief said that the opposition doesn’t want to clash with the institutions and wants to see them strengthened.
