05 February, 2013
LAHORE: Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran (TMQ) chief Tahirul Qadri, while announcing rallies in different cities of the country, has declared start of second phase of his 'people's revolution' from Gujranwala on February 15.
He was addressing a press conference at Minhajul Quran Secretariat in Model Town on Monday. Continuing his aggressive activism against the local political and economic system, he alleged that articles 3 and 38 of the constitution were being violated. However, he clarified once again that although he is a strong critic of "constitutional violations that are being continued in the country", but his party did not wish to postpone the general elections. He further stated that the Pakistan Army was also in favour of maintaining the continuity of a democratic system in the country.
The cleric said that the 'second phase' of his 'revolutionary struggle' would start from Gujranwala from February 15; in Faisalabad on February 17; in Multan on February 22, and in Peshawar on February 24, while rallies would be held in Sukkar and Rawalpindi for electoral reforms in the country.
Qadri said that he would invite all political parties, including Imran Khan's Tehreek-e-Insaf, to join his rallies for a "good change". He said that the 'revolution' had been started in order to install a real democracy in Pakistan.
