PDM all set to hold last ‘power show’ against govt in Lahore today
LAHORE – Preparations for the much-hyped power show in full swing as the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is all gears up to hold its last 'anti-government' power show at Greater Iqbal Park today.
Two of the wooden stages are formed, one for the key leaders while one for the other leaders. A 20 feet high and 8- feet tall LED screen is mounted while at least 10 smaller ones are installed around parts of the venue. Power generators have been placed and heavy-duty lights are installed for the rally beside the sound system.
Huge banners of opposition central leaders have been hung in the venue. Five of the points of entry into the ground have been formed, one for party leadership while others for the public. A separate entrance point and enclosure has been built for female workers.
Former governor Sindh and PML-N leader, Muhammad Zubair said,' Nawaz to make a big announcement at PDM rally today'. Maryam Nawaz's speech should also be listened to as carefully as important too.
The workers of Opposition parties have started arriving at the venue from the last day, while the Jalsa organizers have asked the public to reach the venue at 2 pm. Large banners with pictures of PDM’s central leaders and slogans have also been hung around the grounds.
The PDM key leaders will arrive at the Minar-e-Pakistan venue in multiple rallies. PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz will depart from Jati Umra in a rally while PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto will in a special truck.
It will be the first appearance of PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari at a political gathering at Minar-i-Pakistan.
