He maintained that the security alert about the rally was issued to scare away the people

He said the people who are talking about cancelling the passport of PML-Q Quaid Nawaz Sharif will eat their words soon. He accused the local administration of removing the PDM’s boardings, banners and posters, and they are also framing false cases against their workers.

Rana Sana said PDM rally to prove a no-confidence in the fake government. “Shah Mehmood Qureshi and his government’s days are numbered,” he added.

Responding to a question, he said rallies are the part of the second phase of PDM protests. “It is not essential for all the PDM leaders to participate in every rally, that is whey PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is not coming today,” he added.
