Historic Public Fair held under PAT Faisalabad
Pakistan Awami Tehreek (Faisalabad chapter) organized a prestigious public fair in a local club of Faisalabad on February 25, 2015. PAT Supreme Council President Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri and Secretary General Khurram Nawaz Gandapur were the guests of honour on the occasion, whereas the event was presided over by PAT Punjab President Chaudhry Basharat Aziz Jaspal.
Addressing the participants of the public fair, Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that corrupt, obsolete and elitist political system of Pakistan is reeling under its own burden and the day is not far when the whole edifice will come crumbling down. He asked the people to support Dr Qadri to give a last push to the crumbling walls. He said that Dr Qadri is coming to Pakistan in the month of March and he would resume his struggle from the same point where he left it a few months ago before leaving for the US for his treatment. He said that revolutionary struggle will continue till smiles on the faces of the poor are not restored and this anti-people system is not sent home. He said that it is need of the hour that the Pakistani people take to the streets for their rights as sitting idle at home and expecting change is not an option anymore.
