PAT giving up protests

LAHORE: The head of the Pakistan Awami Tehreek, Tahirul Qadri, has at last bid farewell to his long albeit pointless streak of protests to topple the Punjab government. Although the drive was never going to produce any significant results anyway, it managed to earn the support of both the PTI and the PPP — strange bedfellows. However, now the PAT chairman has decided to quit the protests though he is still demanding for justice for people who lost their lives in the Model Town incident. Perhaps, better late than never!
