PESHAWAR:


All three provincial coalition partners decided after a meeting on Wednesday to hold a protest against drone strikes at the Nato supply blockade camp at Hayatabad Toll Plaza on December 15 at 2pm.


Jamaat-e-Islami Peshawar Chief Bahrullah Khan said after meeting representatives of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and Awami Jamhoori Ittehad Pakistan, leaders of the three parties will also address the rally. Khan lashed out at Federal Minister for Information Pervaiz Rashid, saying he should retract his statement regarding the Nato supply line and stop acting as the Pentagon’s spokesman. He said it was illogical to let US drones kill innocent people at their own will in the country just for the sake of getting dollars.
