She will address a mass rally of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) today at the Jinnah Ground along with other Opposition leaders, the spokesperson said.

In Gujranwala, the PDM chief Fazl, Bilawal, and Maryam lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, telling him that his government's time was up.

Addressing a gathering of thousands at the venue, Maryam said that she was fighting for the businesses that had been destroyed during the incumbent government's tenure and the journalists who were being censored.

"People [journalists] who stood with the truth were fired from their jobs," she said. "I have come to present the case of the Lady Health Workers as well before you, who are languishing on the roads of Islamabad."
