KARACHI: The Difa-e-Pakistan Council has announced its schedule for a countrywide ‘long march’ against the possible resumption of Nato supplies.
The schedule was worked out by the organising committee of DPC in its meeting held at Mansoora on Monday. The meeting was chaired by Liaquat Baloch.
According to the programme, the ‘long march’ will start from Karachi on May 27 and reach Islamabad on June 6.
According to the schedule, the march will begin from Quaid’s mausoleum in Karachi, on May 27, after afternoon prayers and reach Hyderabad the same evening. They would then march on, making stops at Sukkur, Rahimyar Khan, Bahawalpur, Multan, and Sahiwal before reaching Lahore on June 2.
