Last night, Dr Tahirul Qadri had announced an end to negotiations with the government as political impasse continued even after government’s direct talks with the PAT chief.
He also announced that the PAT workers would observe ‘Youm-e-Inquilab’ (day of revolution) on Thursday, without disclosing his further plan of action.

“Govt will show patience and restraint…. and will not allow them to do politics on dead bodies,” Asif said.

“The government would not let anyone derail democracy and it would also fight against anti-democratic elements,” he said.
