PDM rally will be held at Multan’s Qilla Kohna Qasim Bagh at any cost: Fazl
MULTAN (92 News) – Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief and Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) head Maulana Fazlur Rahman on Sunday has said that the rally will be held at the same venue Multan’s Qilla Kohna Qasim Bagh at any cost.
The PDM head announced while addressing a press conference alongside PML-N leader Rana Sanaullah, PPP leader Yousaf Raza Gillani and others in Multan today.
The JUI-F chief alleged that the government is exhibiting state terrorism to stop the PDM rally in Multan. He threatened the government from severe consequences if the political parties were stopped from holding the public gathering in Multan.
He asked political activists to break all barriers by using ‘batons in the response to batons’ by police or any other forces. Fazlur Rehman said that PDM leadership will never accept lawlessness and usage of police forces against the political campaigners.
"We will soon have a long march towards Islamabad and remind the rulers of their times," the JUI-F chief said.
He criticised the crackdowns against political activists across the province and arrests of workers who were finalising preparations for the Multan rally.
While addressing the press conference, Rana Sanaullah said that PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz will arrive in Multan to participate in the upcoming PDM rally at any cost.
Yousaf Raza Gillani said that Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s health is not well and Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari will attend and address the Multan rally tomorrow. He criticised the arrests of his son and PPP workers in Multan by the local administration.
It is pertinent to mention here that the opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) had announced to hold a public meeting on November 30 in Multan.
