LAHORE – Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League-N workers broke through police barriers and stormed into Multan's Qila Qasim Bagh on Saturday ahead of a Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) rally scheduled to take place there on Monday.

The opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) has announced to hold a public meeting on November 30 at the same place.

Due to increasing coronavirus cases in the second wave of the COVID-19 the local administration has denied permission to the opposition parties for the meeting.

Clashes occurred between the workers and law enforcement agencies after the workers entered the premises.
