LONG MARCH REACHED CAPITAL
SLAMABAD: The Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran long march being led by Dr Tahirul Qadri has arrived in the federal capital.
The rally will make its way to the Blue Area where a sit-in will be held until the demands of the Tehreek-e-Minhajul Quran are met. Strict security arrangements were made along the route of the long march and mobile phone services have been suspended in Islamabad.
A large number of people have gathered at Jinnah Avenue to welcome the Long March into Islamabad.
Tahir-ul Qadri, who returned to Pakistan last month after years in Toronto, accuses the government of being corrupt and incompetent, and says polls cannot be held until reforms are enacted.
He claimed on Monday to be leading one million people into Islamabad, where they will camp out on the streets until their demands are accepted.
