Caretaker set-up before Jan 10 only way to stop march: Qadri

December 26, 2012

LAHORE: Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) Chairman Dr Tahirul Qadri has said if the federal government wants to stop the people’s planned march on Islamabad on January 14, it will have to install a consensus caretaker set-up before January 10, 2013, to the satisfaction of the entire nation.
Addressing the central executive council of TMQ on Tuesday, Qadri said a wave of change could be seen everywhere now. He said under the caretaker set-up, elections must be held within 90 days after electoral reforms according to the Constitution.
Qadri, a former MNA who recently addressed a mammoth gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan, stated that the march on Islamabad would witness the participation of more people than those who came to Lahore on Dec 23.
The TMQ has formed 100 organising committees, led by Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz, throughout the country for the Jan 14 march on the federal capital.
It is noteworthy that after resigning from his NA seat in 2004, Dr Tahirul Qadri went to Canada and returned to the country after a gap of many years.
In the Dec 23 rally, he warned the rulers to mend their ways and gave an ultimatum of three weeks to change the system, otherwise, he would lead the people towards Islamabad. According to his claim, nearly two million people attended the Minar-e-Pakistan event and almost double the number would march on Islamabad for the change.
