An anti-government alliance i.e, the PDM announced a series of public meetings against the Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf (PTI) led government in the country. PML (N) leader Maryam Nawaz tweeted. “There is an ocean of people front, back, right & left. This is unprecedented,” she earlier wrote, sharing pictures and videos of the supporters accompanying her convoy.

Bilawal energized his supporters through a brief talk during the journey at Wazirabad, saying the opposition parties will jointly work to rid the people of “this oppressive ruler”.
