MANSOORA: The Difa-i-Pakistan Council (DPC) announced on Saturday that it would hold a long march from Karachi to Islamabad in protest of the possible reopening of Nato supply routes by the government.
A meeting of the council was held here today which was attended by Hafiz Saeed Ahmed of Jamaat ud Dawa (JuD), Syed Munawwar Hasan of the Jamaat-i-Islami (JI), former ISI chief General Hamid Gul, and others.
Addressing media representatives after the meeting, Maulana Sami ul-Haq, the chief of the council, warned the government against opening the supply routes. He announced holding a peaceful long march from Karachi to Islamabad on May 27 besides observing a day of protest on May 25.
Haq said that Prime Minister Gilani and his cabinet were unconstitutional, and therefore had no right to decide on ‘reopening’ the supply lines. Moreover, he also urged people to take part in the long march.http://dawn.com/2012/05/19/dpc-announces-long-march-against-possible-nato-suplly-resumption/
