Jamshed Dasti, the independent MNA from Muzaffargarh, launched a cycle march on March 25, 2015 from his constituency and has currently reached Mian Channu. Dasti says that he will cycle all the way to Islamabad where he will then go to the National Assembly and present 3 resolutions.

The first resolution, he says, will demand that an end be put to the rampant corruption in the country. The second resolution will seek to put the maximum age of parliamentarians at 68 while the third resolution will demand that all the lands rewarded by the Imperial British be taken back from their cronies.

Although Dasti claimed that hundreds of people will accompany him on the cycle march, only 15 to 20 cyclist could be seen flanking him when he started his journey.
