The meeting decided that the Azadi Jeep Rally would be given a warm welcome in different towns by the people in Kuragh, Mastuj and Laspur while the rally will make an overnight stay at Shandur Pass before entering the GB.

Colonel Moeen said the event in the polo ground and the reception points en route to Shandur would be designed in such a way that they evoked patriotism in people as the rally was being organised in connection with the 70th Independence Day celebrations.
