News Desk

The special assistant to Chief Minister Buzdar, Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the Punjab government has decided to register cases against the organisers of the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) Multan jalsa.

According to Geo report, the development comes a day after the 11-party alliance held a massive rally in Multan despite the government’s repeated warnings against doing so, urging it to suspend political gatherings in light of the Covid19 pandemic.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said that among the organisers, 22 belong to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), 16 to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and 13 are of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F). She said that the cases will be registered against unidentified persons as well.

The special assistant also talked about the fire that had erupted during PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz was addressing the rally. She said that we have uncovered the reason behind the fire that had taken place during the princess’ speech. She claimed that the fire had erupted due to a PML-N worker’s fireworks.

Dr Firdous Awan also criticized the PDM Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and said, “Everyone knows Maulana’s pain, he’s sitting outside the assembly for the first time. Parliament does not function to satisfy an individual’s desires. When they bring the no confidence motion, we will see then. For now, these are blackmailing techniques.”
