Rulers more concerned about fence than human lives: Qadri

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) leader Dr Tahir ul Qadri said that his supporters had taken shelter in the Parliament to save their lives after police resorted to teargas shelling.

Addressing the participants of Inqalab March here on Friday, Qadri said rulers appear to be more concerned about an iron fence than human lives.

A human life is more precious than anything else, he emphasized.

The PAT leader said that his workers were beaten up in Islamabad following Model Town tragedy.

He said that rulers had eaten out Rs 5,000 billion in just one year. The government was presenting bogus economic figures in the parliament, he stated.

Qadri was of view that building roads or bridges could not be termed economic progress unless people’s lives were changed. – SAMAA
