He was talking to the media men where they observed hunger strike at the call of PFUJ in front of Multan Press Club (MPC).

Javed Hashmi expressed solidarity with the journalists and said PTI never supported the terrorists nor favoured the terrorism.

However, PTI stressed the need for talk to the Taliban but Present regime deliberately delayed the talk consequently we had to suffer great loss.
