PTI Chairman Imran Khan tweeted:

We are launching the “Jail Bharo” movement for two main reasons.

The first reason is to protest against the fascist system that has led to baseless NAB cases, FIRs, arrests, and custodial torture of people and journalists.


The second reason is to protest against the economic meltdown brought on by the corrupt entities in power who have increased their personal wealth and taken NRO for themselves.
