The Pakistan Day Parade has been canceled owing to bad weather in Islamabad, the Aiwan-e-Sadar said Saturday. Due to bad weather earlier this week, the event was postponed to March 25.
On March 23, a military parade is held annually. The occasion is the focal point of events honoring the 1940 Lahore Resolution, which demanded the creation of an independent nation for Muslims living under British control in India.
In an effort to support the government’s austerity efforts to fend off the economic crisis, the Pakistan Army earlier opted to stage the annual military parade on Pakistan Day on a small scale.
According to the sources, the Pakistan Army is strongly united with the people and will continue to work for the country’s advancement.
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, meanwhile, claimed that “political chaos” was the primary cause of the nation’s economic instability on the 83rd anniversary of Pakistan Day.
In his address, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif urged the populace to remember the nation’s founding fathers’ sacrifices while keeping in mind the problems that still confront the country today.
