LAHORE: Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran chief Tahirul Qadri has said that Islamabad long march was only the beginning, and now his Awami Tehrik party would hold long marches in every city of the country, if needed.

Addressing a news conference, Qadri said that the end of Islamabad long march was initiation of his struggle against corruption and the corrupt. He said he was in favour of democracy "but not the democracy of the plunderers".

Qadri claimed that martial law would have been imposed if he did not announce to end his long march for five more minutes. He said a petition would be filed for dissolution of the Election Commission of Pakistan. About the formation of new provinces, the cleric said he was in favour of south Punjab province.

"No one will be allowed to announce new provinces only for political gains," Qadri said. Regarding the participation in the general elections, he said that the Awami Tehrik Central Committee had given him the mandate, and he would take a decision after deliberation with the party leaders. Qadri said the government had not fulfilled the promise of dissolving the assemblies as per the agreement with him.

The TMQ chief announced that the next phase of his march would start soon, and urged people to be ready to get out of their homes.

End.
