Sher Bahadar Khan,

Shad Nawaz Khan, Aizazul Mulk Afkari and others said the overseas

Pakistanis had brought Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) into power as Imran Khan had promised to make a new Pakistan where the people won’t need to go abroad in connection with their livelihood.

“More than 100 bodies are yet to be shifted from various Gulf and the government is not making efforts to bring them,” said Sahibzada Tariqullah, adding, 26 bodies of people belonging to Lower and Upper Dir were expected to arrive today on Bacha Khan International Airport.

Representative of overseas Pakistanis Qari Fazl Rahman lamented that the overseas Pakistanis had always contributed to the development of the country.

He demanded the PM to immediately call back Raja Ali Ijaz, Pakistan’s ambassador to KSA, to the country.

Meanwhile, Islami Jamiat-I-Talaba (IJT), a student wing of JI, on Tuesday demanded the government to delay launching of online classes for college students as most of the students had no internet facilities and smartphones.
