Multan – Staff Reporter:
Aseefa Bhutto Zardari, former president Asif Ali Zardari and former prime minister Benazir Bhutto’s youngest child, will address the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) jalsa in Multan on November 30.
This was announced by former premier Yousuf Raza Gilani on Friday while talking to reporters. Gilani and his sons are overseeing the preparations for the public gathering which will also mark PPP’s 53rd foundation day.
He said the government was making the situation worse by trying to stop the public gathering, asserting that the rally will definitely take place.
No one can stop the jalsa
Meanwhile, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also said that no force can stop his party from marking its foundation day at the November 30 jalsa in Multan.
“Fascist regime continues to arrest democratic activists in Multan,” said the PPP boss. “These puppets are scared of jiyalas.”
Bilawal was quote tweeting Syed Kasim Gilani, son of former premier Yousuf Raza Gilani, who shared a video of PPP workers “being taken” away in “a police van”.
Maryam Nawaz will also attend Multan rally
Separately, Kasim told reporters that PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz has confirmed her attendance at Sunday’s public gathering.
“We are ready with Plan A, B and C. We have identified 12 spots in the city. If the administration does not let us reach jalsa gah, Qila Kohna Qasim Bagh, we will hold the public meeting at either of these 12 spots.”
It may be mentioned here that Kasim’s brother, Syed Musa Ali Gilani, was arrested along with other party and PDM workers on Wednesday for holding a public rally despite a province-wide ban on large public gatherings owing to the coronavirus pandemic. He was granted bail on Thursday.
