Pakistan Today: Qadri is back!

LAHORE - Announcing a country-wide sit-in on polling day Tehreek Minhaj-ul-Quran chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri on Tuesday rejected the upcoming elections and said that there would be no change on May 11.

Speaking to journalists, he said the May 11 elections would usher the same old faces into the parliament, adding the current system would never be the foundation of real change in the country.

Tahirul Qadri said that “real change” in the country was impossible, especially because there was a common root between the government and the opposition: corruption.

“We do not want to become a part of this corrupt system. We will organise sit-ins across the country in every city to protest this election,” he said, adding he would put forward a new system to bring about change in the country after the elections were held.

“I will present a new system after the terrible collapse of this system,” he said.

The Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP), he alleged, had saved every corrupt person and all those immersed in corruption had been given a go-ahead to take part in the elections.

“Our war against the corruption will continue,” he said.
