Cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri today gave the Pakistan government a 90-minute deadline to act on his demands to quit and dissolve the national and provincial assemblies amidst increasing signs that support for his protest was dwindling.
"I am giving the government a deadline of one-and-half hours. You don't have any more time. The deadline will end at 3 pm, when I will announce my next action," Qadri told thousands of his supporters camping on Jinnah Avenue, Islamabad's main boulevard near the presidency and parliament.
"People should come out to save democracy, Constitution and law and for the poor people's right. At 3 pm, I will announce the final action," he said.
Qadri gave no indication of what he intended to do if the government failed to meet his deadline.
