The stage is set for the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) Lahore Jalsa being held at the historic Minar-e-Pakistan.
As per reports, the PDM is expected to announce a decisive phase of its campaign against the PTI-led government in today’s public meeting.
A luncheon for the PDM leaders was hosted at the residence of Ayaz Sadiq where all PDM leaders gathered before departing for the PDM Jalsa venue.
In a tweet, PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz advised the attendees to “wear a mask for your own safety and that of your dear ones, at all times, before, during, and after” the rally. However, the scenes from the venue share another story.
Dear All, as responsible citizens, please remember to wear a mask for your own safety & that of your dear ones, at all times, before, during & after what is going to Insha’Allah a historic jalsa.— Maryam Nawaz Sharif (@MaryamNSharif) December 13, 2020
Thank You 🙏🏻
A day earlier, the government of Punjab had shared a possible terror threat regarding the PDM public gathering.
On Saturday, Lahore police sent letters to PDM convener Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Maryam Nawaz, and lawmakers Khawaja Saad Rafique and Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, and PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari.
“TTP terrorists are coordinating to carry out the terrorist activity on 13 December 2020. Although details regarding the place of terrorist activity and likely targets are not available, the date (13 December 2020) appears to be significant as a huge public gathering is expected at Minar-e-Pakistan,” the letter said.
