Former Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) lawmaker Ali Musa Gillani has been granted bail by a special magistrate in Multan on Thursday.
According to the details, Gillani, son of former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gillani, was arrested following a rally ahead of the upcoming PDM jalsa. Ali Musa Gilani had reached Chahlik police station to protest where he has been arrested.
The rally — from Multan’s Nawan Shehr to Ghanta Ghar Chowk — was led by the PPP in preparation for the PDM’s jalsa meeting on November 30.
The Deputy Commissioner of Multan, Amir Khattak, said the district administration had not allowed the PPP to hold a rally. Consequently, heavy contingents of police were deployed on all roads leading to the city’s Nawan Shehr.
Pakistan Peoples Party leader Qamar Zaman Kaira said that the government has been holding rallies whereas opposition rallies are being banned. He said that the Prime Minister himself does not take precautionary measures against Coronavirus and criticize the opposition.
Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had strongly condemned the arrest of Ali Musa Gilani.
