Patron-in-chief of Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri warned that the revolution is just round the corner, adding the rulers will be left shell-shocked and paralyzed as and when the revolution becomes a reality during this year.
Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri remarked that the oppressed people would take to streets to rid the country of the rulers, who have amassed all the resources in Lahore, asserting that those who rubbished the revolution, would soon become fully cognizant of it.
The rulers will be left all perplexed the day when revolution materializes, he warned.
Dr. Qadri was of the opinion that the entire nation is up to the hilt mindful of the rulers’ intention, adding the democracy is nothing but the devolution of power to the grass-root level.
The PAT leader argued that it was incumbent upon the government to provide the necessities of life to its citizens in accordance with the Article-38 of the Constitution; but, after the lapse of even 45 years of the 1973 Constitution, this Article still awaits its implementation in the country.
He noted that his devolution plan is based on two articles of the Constitution pertaining the local governments i.e. Article-32 and Article-140A.
Article-140A states that “Each province shall by law establish a local government system and devolve political, administrative and financial responsibility and authority to the elected representatives of the local governments.”
Dr. Qadri said the so-called democratic and political parties have been violating this Article, as they are not willing to delegate the political or administrative powers to the grass-root level.
He was of the view that the rulers’ system of pillage and plunder will be torn apart in case the Article-140 of the Constitution is put in practice in letter and spirit; but, the rulers are not in the least willing to depute powers to the people.
“I want to give this nation an Asian Democratic Model in consonance with the international norms and European charter of democracy,” he added.
The PAT leader said the rulers sign trade agreements with other countries; but, they do not learn from their democratic models, adding Chinese government has devolved its powers to 333 prefectural governments, under which, there are 2862 county governments, like our district governments. He said these governments run China using its resources.
There are 41,636 town governments under the county governments, he informed saying he wants to give the same model to Pakistan.
Under the town governments, there are 704,386 village level regions, which are not governments; but, they are given resources, he further elaborated.
Detailing about the local governments in the US, Dr. Qadri said there are 3,034 county governments responsible for the entire development of the US. But in Pakistan, all the powers are concentrated in Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore, Quetta and Peshawar.
Announcing the timing of his green revolution, Dr. Qadri said the revolution would take place during the current year.
