LAHORE: Massive crowds pour into Minar e Pakistan for the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s jalsa in Lahore.
11 parties, including the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) are participating in the jalsa which they claim will be a public referendum against the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf (PTI) government.
Mohtarma Maryam Nawaz Sharif has reached the venue.
This will be PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s first appearance at a political gathering at Minar-i-Pakistan. His late mother, former prime minister Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, held a historic jalsa at Minar-i-Pakistan in 1986.
The first to address the crowd was Jamiat Ulema-i-Pakistan’s (JUP) Awais Noorani, who told Prime Minister Imran Khan to submit his resignation and called upon PTI supporters to “rebel” against the ruling party.
