ISLAMABAD: The local administration stopped Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz from holding rally in Mandi Bahauddin, following which party leader Maryam Nawaz vowed to reach the rally venue on Sunday at any cost.
According to local administration, the Quaid-e-Azam ground has been sealed as due to rains, water has accumulated on the ground.
District Police Officer Nasir Siyyal said that the permission wasn’t granted due to security concerns.
PML-N claimed that 70 of its workers were arrested, who were trying to reach the venue of the rally.
DPO Siyyal denied that any arrests were made.
A day ago, PML-N had released a video clip purportedly showing an accountability court judge allegedly admitting to a lack of evidence against former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the Al-Azizia Steel Mills reference.
The video purportedly shows the accountability court judge speaking to a PML-N worker named Nasir Butt and claiming that he was coerced to hand down the prison sentence against Nawaz Sharif despite there being no proof of corruption against the deposed premier.
Maryam alleged that the video shows the judge admitting that no evidence of embezzlement of funds in Pakistan or in Saudi Arabia was found against Hussain Nawaz Sharif.
She claimed the judge was under immense pressure to send the former prime minister to jail, and that he had contemplated committing suicide several times since.
Speaking at the press conference, Maryam termed the alleged video "divine intervention" which had arrived to help her father at a time when he had given up hopes of getting justice from the courts.
