Speaking to the participants of the meeting, PAT Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the rulers have turned National Action Plan into Selection Plan.

He said that elimination of terrorism is not possible as long as present rulers are there. He said that dust was thrown into the eyes of the people by taking action against the loud speakers in the name of the NAP. He said that the credit for semblance of peace visible across the land at the moment goes to the Operation Zarb-e-Azb.

Dr Qadri said that the government is being run through blue eyes individuals and the companies. He said that important decisions of the national import are being taken in the drawing rooms of rulers, not at the floor of the Parliament. He said that the institutions are weak and the poor are getting poorer whereas the ruling elite is getting richer by the day. He said that the present rulers have failed to deliver on terrorism, unemployment, load-shedding and price hike. He made it clear that we would go to any extent to seek justice for Model Town martyrs.

The meeting adopted another resolution which demanded that all points of the NAP should be implemented and its operation should be extended to other provinces uniformly. It said that Islamic Curriculum on Peace and Counter Terrorism designed by Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri should be taught at the educational institutions. It was further demanded that funds and powers should be given to the local government institutions.
