Published at: 5 month(s) ago

Lahore: The Government of Punjab decided late on Monday to offer full-fledged security to the participants of a sit-in being staged by the Pakistan Awami Tehrik (PAT) and other parties on January 17.

According to details, strict checking will be conducted at the city's entry and exit points on the day of the protest while the police officers on duty will remain unarmed.

Police personnel from adjoining cities will also be called on duty in order to provide additional security to the protesters on a larger scale.

'Will get justice' for Model Town martyrs
Prior to this, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari — upon reaching Lahore — said, "Enough is enough; we will get justice for the martyrs of the Model Town tragedy."

Zardari also met the PPP party leaders and discussed various matters, including the January 17 protest and campaign against the government.

The co-chairman advised his party leaders to ensure that more and more members should come to Mall Road for the protest.

Punjab Chief MinisterShehbaz Sharif's government cannot go on anymore, Zardari stressed, adding that he will make sure that justice prevails.

PAT against ruling party
It is noteworthy that earlier this month, PAT chief Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri had announced to commence a campaign against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's (PML-N) government, starting January 17.

Almost all parties of the opposition, including the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), have already disclosed their decision to join PAT's protest.

Qadri had underscored that the demand is not just limited to resignations of the chief minister and law minister now, but removing the PML-N in its entirety.

"We need to end the enemies of humanity and tyrannical rule, eliminate PML-N; it will now be the public's hand tugging at the collars of these leaders."

According to Qadri, invitations to join the January 17 protest have been extended to Pak Sarzameen Party chief Mustafa Kamal, and leaders of various other political parties.
