The leaders of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) have been booked on Tuesday for holding a public gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan in Lahore.

According to the details, police registered a case against the central leadership of PDM. The case has been filed at Lari Adda police station in which PDM central leaders were nominated including PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz and other party leaders including Khawaja Saad Rafique, Ahsan Iqbal, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Rana Sanaullah, and Marriyum Aurangzeb.

The case was registered over the complaint of PHA security officer Muhammad Zameer under 15 different sections for violating standard operating procedures (SOPs) of COVID-19, sound system act and government orders.

On Monday While chairing the PML-N’s Central Executive Committee (CEC) and Central Working Committee (CWC) meetings in Lahore, Maryam expressed displeasure with the party leaders after they failed to bring out the people to the jalsagah.

“Lahore division leadership failed to bring people to PDM public gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan.” It was expected that 500,000 people will attend the rally but unfortunately, the rally could not attract as much audience as it was being expected,” said the PML-N leader.

It should be noted that PDM workers broke into Lahore’s Greater Iqbal Park after removing the lock of gate No.5 of the park.

The local administration locked gate no 5 of Iqbal Greater Park after the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was denied permission of holding a public gathering at the Minar-e-Pakistan, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The final public meeting of the PDM seeking to oust the government of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) through public revolt concluded on Sunday in Lahore.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice President Maryam Nawaz, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, and other leaders were greeted by the charged crowd when they reached the venue, Minar-e-Pakistan.
