PESHAWAR, August 11: Chairman of the Pakistan Awami Tehreek, Dr Tahirul Qadri has decided to unite what he calls his march for revolution in Pakistan with the independence march of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf on 14 August.

On 10 August, Dr Qadri asked his party’s activists in Lahore, Punjab, to join “Inqilab March” (revolution march) on 14 August to put an end to system of injustice in the country by joining hands with Imran Khan.

Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf chief Mr Imran Khan has also welcomed Mr Qadri in his march and said they would stage independence march on 14 August to demand re-elections in Pakistan.

Mr Imran Khan said that even if Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif resigned, he would be held accountable for rigging in the last year’s general elections.

Opposition leader, Mr Khurshid Shah, has criticised the protest march of Mr Khan and Mr Qadri and said it would create problems and hurdle development process in the country.

Previously Mr Khan had demanded re-elections in a few constituencies, but later he changed his demand and said re-election should be held in the country and that the incumbent government led by Nawaz Sharif must relinquish power.
