Shopkeepers in Dargah Bazar and Dhan mandi (grain market) have decided to wash and clean the market place after the visit of Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on July 16, their association announced here today.
It will be in retaliation to washing of Minar-e-Dargah in Lahore after the visit of Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, president of Dargah Bazar and Dhan mandi shopkeepers association Doulat Longani said in a statement.
"We are also anguished over the fact that Musharraf, as Pakistan Army chief at that time, declined to salute Vajpayee and failed to attend the state banquet in his honour," Longani said.
Musharraf would be passing through the two markets on his way to the historic dargah of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti for `jiyarat' (pilgrimage). (PTI)
