LAHORE: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) leader Dr. Tahirul Qadri said his party will take out Inqilab (revolution) March in Multan on February 22, in Peshawar on February 24, CNBC Pakistan reported on Thursday.

Earlier late yesterday night, he left Lahore for Islamabad where he would file a petition in the Supreme Court of Pakistan today (Thursday) for the reconstitution of the Election Commission of Pakistan.

Talking to media at Islamabad airport, he said, “I came here to file a petition at Supreme Court for the dissolution of the ECP. And, I will come again if the plea is taken up for hearing.”

Responding a question regarding revolution, he said it is the name of struggle; revolution does not transpire in five days.

It is worth noting here that earlier yesterday he addressed a press conference along with Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf leaders Javed Hashmi and Shah Mahmood Qureshi over the reconstitution of Election Commission—one of four popular demands he presented before the government’s coalition partners at the close of the historic Islamabad sit-in.

PTI President Javed Hashmi said that Tahir ul Qadri contacted Tehreek-e-Insaf before the long march, adding his party takes cognizance of the struggle of Tahirul Qadri, as he wants to bring about a real change in the country.

Expressing the party's dissatisfaction with the functioning of the ECP, the PTI leader said attempts are afoot to curb the voice of people.

Speaking on this occasion, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that his party does not favor the postponement of elections and reiterated that PTI would not take any extra-constitutional step. CNBC Pakistan
