Difa-e-Pakistan Council, or DPC, announced that its component parties would stage a long march on July 8 against the federal government to protest the reopening of the Nato transit routes.

“A committee has been formed to approach other political and religious groups for support for the long march which will start from Lahore,” DPC Chairman Maulana Samiul Haq told a news conference on Wednesday.

Attendees at the news conference included all major DPC leaders, including Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, Hameed Gul, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed and Liaqat Baloch.

“One woman phoned another woman and said ‘sorry’. If Pakistan and the US have cut any deal on reopening Nato transit routes it should be made public,” said Maulana Samiul Haq referring to Tuesday’s telephone call between US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her Pakistani counterpart Hina Rabbani Khar.

@Wtf? Are you off topic or are you suggesting that PTI and DPC are basically the same thing? I think we both know the answer to that one.... :)

@ifti: Do you want to have food served to you in your next plate or your Ghairat? Since you cannot have both. Not at the stage that Pakistan is in right now. So please decide and let everyone know.
