PML-N Dharna, March & Protest Rally towards the Presidency Islamabad Today (October 6, 2011)
ISLAMABAD ( Thursday, October 06, 2011) : PML-N lawmakers would lead a protest rally today towards the Presidency from the Parliament House and also stage a sit-in against prolonged loadshedding and the Balochistan situation.
The PML-N kicked off its movement against the government by staging a sit-in outside the Parliament House on Wednesday with a PPP parliamentarian from Balochistan, Nasir Ali Shah, to protest against the killing of members of the Hazara community.
Speaking to the media outside parliament, Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, said the PML-N would protest against loadshedding so the government could start taking note of the internal problems plaguing the country. He said the situation had worsened to a point where the PML-N thought it would be a sin not to act. He said despite widespread protests countrywide, the PPP-led government was reluctant to take steps to overcome the crisis. Nisar vowed that his party would not let the government punish people and would remind it of its promises made to the public.
