Asad Umar demands Fawad Chaudhry's release

LAHORE (Dunya News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Asad Umar on Wednesday demanded release of PTI senior vice president Fawad Chaudhry and said arguments should be countered by arguments, and not by arrests. 

Speaking to media, he said the government was afraid as Mr Fawad spoke the truth. “It should appear before the court to prove Mr Fawad wrong,” he added. The masses were, he said, standing beside PTI chief Imran Khan. 

He said if the federal government wanted to know how to counter terrorism in the country, it should get inspiration from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) government. People were, he said, facing the worst inflation and businesses were closing on a daily basis.
