Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Lahore Jalsa kicks off here on Sunday (today) at Minar-e-Pakistan, termed as a “historic and decisive” power show.
According to police sources, around 8,500 people participated in the PDM Lahore Jalsa, while according to the special branch around 10,000 people attended the public gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan.
On their arrival at the venue, PDM leaders Maulana Fazlur Rehman, Maryam Nawaz, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari along with others received and greeted by enthusiastic supporters.
Addressing the gathering, the JUI-F Chief Maulana Fazl said: “The wounds inflicted by the rigging done by the establishment for this illegal government, the dirty role they played [to sieze] this illegal power are getting deeper.”
Fazl further said that he wanted to “alert and caution the defence forces and their leadership […] to move out of the people’s way and let them reach Islamabad”.
“In the coming days, I see anarchy in the country. We should handle matters before heading towards anarchy,” he said.
Back-lashing the incumbent government, the PDM Chief stated that Imran Khan with other crisis, was also not able to protest the Occupied Kashmir.
Fazlur Rehman also said that today India has consumed Kashmir and we have nothing in our hands to do for the innocent Kashmiris.
He said that for the past three years, the prime minister had been saying that he will not grant an NRO, but today, he himself is seeking NRO from the people, added Fazlur Rehman.
“Illegal government is in power in Pakistan, rigging had been done for the illegitimate government while we [PDM leaders] are here to save the future of Pakistan,” added the JUI-F Chief.
Moreover, Fazl informed about a long march in Islamabad in late January or early February. He aims to put an end to the fake PTI government.
