The fifth power show of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was held on Monday at Multan’s Ghanta Ghar Chowk after days of conflict between the city administration and opposition workers over holding a public event at a time when the incidence of coronavirus is rising.
Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-(F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz and PPP’s Aseefa Bhutto-Zardari, along with other PDM leaders and their respective supporters attended the public meeting.
Aseefa, who attended the rally on her brother and PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari’s behalf, said that the public has given its verdict and the “selected will have to go now”.
“I have come among you today at a time when my brother, your brother, Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari is suffering from coronavirus. I hope that just like you supported the mother of democracy and the daughter of the east, you will support Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on PDM’s platform. And I promise that I will support Chairman Bilawal and you at every step.”
“If they think we will be scared of arrests, they are deluded. If they arrest our brothers, every female worker of PPP will step outside to save our brothers and the country,” Aseefa told a charged crowd.
