Qadri calls APC on 28th
LAHORE – Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) chief Dr Tahirul Qadri has called an All Parties Conference on December 28th to formulate a joint strategy against the government on the issue of Model Town tragedy.
Dr Qadri has already given December 31st deadline for the Punjab Chief Minister, Law Minister and the civil officers to step down from their offices.
He announced this while addressing a Press conference alongwith Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed who called on him at the party secretariat on Thursday evening.
Qadri said that heads of all political and religious parties have been invited to the APC to express their opinion on the prospects of launching a movement against the present rulers.
Quoting figures allegedly taken from the official documents, Dr Qadri said that as many as 809 policemen from 45 police stations including 204 snipers and sharp shooters participated in the operation to remove barriers in Model Town.
He questioned if such an arrangement was made without seeking approval from the Chief Minister.
Replying to a question, PTI chief saw a bleak future for Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, stating he stood no chance of becoming the next Prime Minister. “But I can see him hanged in the Model Town killings case,” he predicted.
Qadri believed that Shehbaz will take his last breath at the hands of Angel of Death and his party was only making ground arrangements for that to happen.
He did not agree with the popular view that Nawaz Sharif and Shehbaz had political differences between them.
“They are the two sides of the same coin”, he stated.
