Ppi May 19, 2012

LAHORE: The Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) will march from Karachi towards Islamabad on May 27 against the government’s likely decision to reopen supply routes for Nato forces in Afghanistan.

The announcement came after a meeting of the Difa-e-Pakistan Council was held under Jamiat-e-Ulama-e-Islam (JUI-S) Chairman Maulana Samiul Haq at the Jamaat-e-Islami Headquarter at Mansoora on Saturday.

Addressing a press conference, Haq said the council had decided to start a march against the reopening of Nato supply routes from the country.

“The march will start from Karachi on May 27, and after passing through various cities it will culminate in Islamabad,” he added.

He maintained that it would be a peaceful march in which people from all over the country would take part to voice the sovereignty of the country.

Protests will be staged all over the country on Friday against the government’s move to reopen Nato supply routes, he added.

Why upto Islamabad when there is no government worth its name. The march should continue upto Siachen.

NATO supplies were never blocked during MMA govt in NWFP and Baluchistan from 2002-2007. Now they talk of blocking and disrupting when someone else is in power.
