Pakistan Awami Tehreek(PAT), headed by Tahir-ul-Qadri, will set out for their inqilab March on the morning of 14th August, at 10am. Tahir-ul-Qadri, who returned from Canada in June, has promised his supporters that he will rid the country from the current leadership.
On the other hand, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, headed by the enigmatic Imran Khan, has agreed to join forces with PAT. Imran Khan has accused the current government for rigging the 2013 Elections, and has launched his Azadi March. Both parties will leave Lahore at the same time and would protest at Zero Point Islamabad.
Political temperatures are sky high at this time, as the current government has decided to de-rail both Long marches by installing containers and other hinderences all over the country. All major roads leading to the capital have been sealed and the capital is under lockdown. Over 20,000 forces in the shape of Army and Police have been called to the capital to defuse the situation.
All attempts for negotiations have failed, as both PTI and PAT are hell-bent on marching to Islamabad and staying there till their demands are not met. Section 144 has been declared in Islamabad, while the army has been called for support.
