Opposition holds second power show at Karachi’s Bagh-i-Jinnah

KARACHI: The 11-party opposition held its second power show in Karachi today (Sunday), under the banner of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), hosted by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP).

Meanwhile, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice president Maryam Nawaz and JUI-F Cheif Maulana Fazlur Rehman arrived at Bagh-i-Jinnah.

Hundreds of supporters welcomed the leaders at the venue, dancing to the beat of PPP’s anthem. The crowd waved flags of the various political parties. Bilawal thanked the enthusiastic crowd and welcomed the JUI-F chief and PML-N vice president.

Maryam Nawaz was welcomed at the airport by a large number of party workers. This was her first public appearance in the metropolis.

From the Airport, the PML-N vice president led a convoy of PML-N workers to the Quaid’s mausoleum where she offered fateha. Maryam is accompanied by former Sindh governor and PML-N leader Mohammad Zubair.

Member of National Assembly (MNA) Mohsin Dawar has also arrived in Karachi to attend the rally along with supporters and workers of the Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) group.

Talking to media, Mohsin Dawar informed that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chief Bilawal Bhutoo had invited him to attend the rally. He is expected to address the public gathering.

However, former prime minister and PML-N supremo will not address participants today (Sunday). In his speech at the Gujranwala public meeting, Nawaz accused Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa and ISI chief Lt Gen Faiz Hameed of being behind his ouster as prime minister and of bringing Imran Khan into power.

Heavy contingents of police have been deployed across the route of the rally. According to details, about 3,740 officials have been deployed along with 30 senior officials and 65 deputy superintendents of police to ensure foolproof security.

About 112 female officials of the special security unit have also been posted and 284 commandoes of the SSU will be present at the venue. Furthermore, 159 officials of the Rapid Response Force have also been deployed to provide security.
