Qadri vows creation of Hazara province
HARIPUR: Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chairman Dr Tahirul Qadri Friday vowed a new ‘Hazara Province’ would be created in Khyber Pakhrunkhwa when his party would come in power.
“Our government will make a new ‘Hazara province’ in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,” Qadri announces while addressing participants of the sit-in in Haripur.
The PAT chief said that his “Inquilab sit-ins” would continue till all the culprits involved in Model Town tragedy would be brought to justice.
“Had such incidents occurred in any democratic country, the ruler would have resigned,” Qadri said.
He reiterated that no blood money would be accepted for the victims of Model Town tragedy.
Criticizing the Punjab government, Qadri said that he had to stage-sit in for months to get the case registered of Model Town tragedy that left at least 14 people dead.
The PAT chief further said that the Punjab government is responsible for the Model Town tragedy.
“Today’s sit-in in Haripur is a ‘symbolic funeral’ of status quo and soon the nation would witness the ‘real funeral’ of the government,” Qadri said..
Responding to his critics, the PAT chief said that he ended his 70-day Islamabad sit-in to transform it into a countrywide movement against the government.
“I have not ended the Islamabad sit-in, rather I spread it across the country,” he said. -Samaa
