RAWALPINDI - Inqilab March of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) led by Dr Allama Tahir-ul-Qadri entered Islamabad via T Chowk Rawat on Friday night with a hope to bring real democracy in the country.
The marchers, according to sources, were 25,000 to 30,000 in number. They were riding on motorcycles, mini-buses, cars, wagons, coasters and vans. Rosy welcome was accorded to marchers at T Chowk Rawat, Koral, Khanna East Road, Khanna Bridge, Shakrial, Kuri Road, Dhoke Kala Khan and Faizabad Interchange. Strict security arrangements were put in place to shield the participants of the march.
A tumultuous welcome was accorded to marchers upon their arrival at Gujjar Khan by thousands of workers standing on both sides of the road in cheerful mood.
They showered rose petals on the participants of the march. The workers were chanting slogans of brining change and real revolution in Pakistan.
PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain reportedly joined PAT Chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri at Gujjar Khan.
