PAT chief Qadri calls APC to decide future course of action

LAHORE: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri has said that they would announce their future course of action during an all parties conference (APC) scheduled for December 28.

Speaking at a joint press conference on Thursday with Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed, the PAT chief said they are inviting all major political and religious parties in order to hold consultation with them.

“The real case is that of the Model Town incident, and all others would be opened on their time,” he said.

It is important to mention here that in the light of the Model Town inquiry report, Qadri had called on Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Law Minister Rana Sanaullah earlier this week to step down from their positions by December 31.

Qadri, on Wednesday, had also announced launching a movement ‘Tehreek-e-Qisas’ in response to ‘Tehreek-e-Adl’ announced by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif, saying that he will announce his next course of action in case his demands are not met.

Meanwhile, AML chief Sheikh Rasheed said: “Nawaz Sharif wants to drive the country towards destruction. I appeal to them to let the country move forward [because] shouting at the judiciary and other institutions will get you nothing.”

Criticising Ishaq Dar, he said the finance minister should return to Pakistan if he is clean.

At the behest of the Lahore High Court, the Punjab government had made the report of the Model Town incident public on December 5.

The inquiry report—prepared by Justice Baqir Najfi commission—says that police tried to cover up the facts regarding who gave orders to open fire on protesters, according to the commission report released Tuesday.

It adds that no legal opinion was sought from the Punjab advocate general prior to the start of the operation.
