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.

The participants of the march would stay in Punjab’s provincial capital on June 3, before resuming their journey to Islamabad via Gujranwala, Jhelum, finally reaching the federal capital on June 6.

The DPC were hopeful that people in different cities and towns along their route would welcome the marchers, and even join them.

The organising committee includes Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed, Maulana Amir Hamza, Qari Zawar Bahadur, Maulana Abdur Rauf Farooqi, Allama Shamsur Rahman, Moawya, Qari Mansoor Ahmed and others.

    Topi drama — when topi is already agreed to opening NAT supplies then this is just drama to cover for the embarrassment.

    DPC is trying desperately to steal PTIs thunder, they announce a jalsa on the same as PTI during the Quetta jalsa and now the Pindi jalsa. Wonder why the establishment is desperately trying to undermine the PTI led tsunami

    Will there be oxygen tanks for their leaders? Or am I giving them too much credit in thinking they might walk a block or two?
