PDM to hold rally in Bahawalpur on Sunday


ISLAMABAD – Chief of the Pakistani Democratic Movement, Maulana Fazlur Rehman will lead a political rally in Bahawalpur on Sunday.

According to sources, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz and former prime minister and PPP leader Yousuf Raza Gilani will also attend the rally.

The rally will pass through Bandra Bridge, Model Town C Chowk, Fateh Chowk, Model Town B, and reach Toll Plaza Sutlej Bridge.

It is expected that all three — Fazlur Rehman, Maryam Nawaz and Yousuf Raza Gilani — will address the rally at Chowk Seraiki.

A spokesman for the district police said the administration had not yet given permission for the rally.

Warning notices have been issued to the organisers to cancel the rally and the Panaflexes and billboards in the city advertising the rally have been removed, he said.

The police spokesman added that cases have been registered against local PDM officials and workers for violating coronavirus safety protocols.

PML-N leader Baligh-ur-Rehman has said that the government is panicking in the face of the Opposition movement. He said crude tactics are being used to stop the rally.

“PDM is the voice of the people, the rally will be held tomorrow at all costs,” he vowed.
