LAHORE: PML-Q President Chaudhry Shujaat Husain has hinted that both Pakistan Tahreek-i-Insaf and Pakistan Awami Tahreek are on board and their workers will be on the road together.

"Whether it is Inqilab march or Azadi march… all are on board and all will be on road. Democracy has not come in a proper manner in the country. Real democracy will come only after the revolution," Shujaat said at a joint press conference here on Tuesday.

He said the prevailing situation in the country was discussed during a telephonic conversation with former president Asif Ali Zardari as he did not ask him to review the decision to participate in the march.

Pervaiz Elahi said the PML-N government was responsible for the present crisis." The future line of action will be announced after Aug 10," he said.

He said the 'third force' that would play its role in acceptance of demands of the opposition would be known after Aug 14 and 15.

Dr Tahirul Qadri reiterated that the PML-N government would be sent packing before the end of this month. He said if the government tried to stop the participants of the 'martyrs day' in Lahore they would march on the Jati Umera.

Majlis-i-Wahdatul Muslimeen leader Allama Raja Nasir Abbas said it would fully support PAT's revolution march.
