The Rawalpindi administration has denied permission to the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) for holding public rally on April 4 to mark the 42nd death anniversary of its founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
According to the details, the administration denied permission due to the significant rise in the coronavirus cases in the city.
PPP had sought permission from the district administration of Rawalpindi to allow them to hold a public gathering but was denied owing to the growing number of COVID-19 cases.
