GUJRANWALA: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s caravan, after stopping at Rawalpindi, Jhelim, Gujrat and Gujranwala, has entered Lahore on Saturday.
Preparations were completed at the venue set-up at Daata Darbar for the former premier’s address to PML-N supporters.
Devotees were barred from entering the premises of the Sufi shrine in expectation of Nawaz’s arrival.
Roads surrounding the shrine were closed off by security personnel, causing inconvenience to motorists and the area’s residents.
Due to heavy congestion on the roads, vehicles which are part Nawaz’s caravan have been asked to stop before Ravi bridge.
Only vehicles belonging to Nawaz and PML-N leaders have been allowed to proceed. Participants of the rally have been advised to proceed on foot from the bridge to Daata Darbar.
The local administration has instructed workers to park their vehicles at Shahdara.
A large number of PML-N supporters have arrived at the venue. Local administration has stopped the Metro route between Shahdara and Daata Bar.
Security personnel have conducted a sweep of the stage set-up at Shahdara to ensure security of the former premier.
Metal detectors and sniffer dogs were used by security forces to mitigate the risk of any untoward incident.
