FAISALABAD: (APS) – Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Dr. Tahirul Qadri has said, “Give me vote, note (currency) and support and I will give you revolution”. He said that Faisalabad has given its verdict in favor of the revolution. He said that nation is with him and Faisalabad will prove it in the coming elections. He said he will fight the looters with the help of poor’s money.
Addressing the PAT gathering today (Sunday) in Faisalabad, Tahirul Qadri said that the current system favors the corrupt only. “My fault was that I gave a 10 points agenda for the welfare of the poor in this country. My fault was that I announced to provide free education to all. My fault was that I announced to make a non-violent country. My fault was that I announced to provide basic necessities of life at half rates to the poor. My fault was that I talked of providing food and shelter to the poor”, said Tahirul Qadri.
“I was punished for all these faults with an attack on my residence. 14 innocent men and women lost their lives. When we observed a ‘Martyrs Day’ in Lahore, 25,000 of our workers were arrested. Then we led a long march to Islamabad and a 60-day sit-in was held in the federal capital. He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif could have asked his brother Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif to resign temporarily but he didn’t”, said PAT chief.
Awami Tehreek leader said, “Though their government could not be toppled but my speeches instilled a passion for revolution in the hearts and minds of the nation. As a result, today there are hundreds of thousands of revolutionaries are present in this gathering and Faisalabad has given its verdict in favor of the revolution”.
PAT chief said that he wanted to share some facts with the people listening to him. He said that since 1970s, foreign loans on Pakistan are constantly rising. He said that currently the foreign loans on Pakistan are 65 billion dollars. He alleged that the actual figure of our foreign loans has exceeded 90 billion dollars as government is portraying the foreign loans worth 35 billion dollars as foreign investment. He said that no government was serious in getting rid of these loans and as a result, people are getting poorer and poorer every new day.
Dr. Qadri said that if he made visits to all parts of the world from United States to Japan, only the overseas Pakistanis will be enough to provide Pakistanis with enough money to pay their foreign loans. He said that revolution will change the lives of people living in all the villages and cities of Pakistan.
“How can people live with only Rs. 12,000 monthly salary”, he asked. He said that the current system is anti-people. He said he was doing everything only for the people of Pakistan and had no personal grudges for Nawaz Sharif, Shahbaz Sharif or Asif Zardari.
