ISLAMABAD: Religious parties announced they would hold a long march on July 8 against the government’s decision to reopen NATO supply routes.
The decision was taken at a meeting of Difa Pakistan Council (DPC) in Islamabad on Wednesday.
The DFC decided that an all-party conference would be held on July 5 in Lahore.
DFC chief Maulana Sami ul Haq said a nationwide protest would be staged on Friday against the NATO supply reopening.
JUI-F leader Maulana Fazlur Rehman also termed the decision as contrary to the Parliamentary resolution.
Pakistan’s main opposition party PML-N has also voiced its opposition to the withdrawal of NATO supply blockage.
Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali described the decision as disgraceful. The U-turn taken by the government has hurt the Pakistan’s dignity and sovereignty of the Parliament, he added. SAMAA
