ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri on Sunday whipped up his anti-government movement by directing his supporters to write "Go-Nawaz-Go" slogan on currency notes.

Addressing his workers at the sit-in, the enraged Qadri said, "We are launching a new campaign from today (Sunday). Write 'Go Nawaz Go' on currency notes and circulate them. Whatever you buy, pay for it with notes bearing this slogan. This will be your vote."

He said he was starting this campaign "over the brutalities of police against his followers" and urged that "Go-Nawaz-Go" is the motto of this movement and advised his workers to write it on each currency note they use for purchase of various items.

He said the protest demonstration should continue "till the complete elimination of oppression from the country". "Our protest is not only for the Model Town incident but for whole country," he asserted. Meanwhile, the State Bank of Pakistan has warned that any such move will render the currency note in question invalid. The bank said that writing a political slogan on a currency note will waste it. It said that no bank, including the State Bank, will accept such a currency note.

Qadri accused PM Nawaz Sharif of giving Rs 2.75 billion to IB to restrict the "Inqilab March". He said people of Pakistan are deprived of their basic rights.
