"If you want to see in its real vein, come and join the PTI in its decisive sit-in in Islamabad," he said.

He critcised the incumbent Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the previous People's Party (PPP) governments for weakening state institutions and also stated that authorities had failed to act against the Prime Minister, Chief Minister of Punjab province Shahbaz Sharif and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar who he has deemed as being corrupt.
