A heavy police force was also deputed to meet any untoward incident while traffic on the side roads of rally track remained clogged up for hours.

Addressing the highly charged up participants of the rally, Hamza Shahbaz said on October 11 the people will bury the politics of lies of Imran Khan.

He said that Imran Khan has vexed the tiger and now the tiger will not remain calm.

He said Imran Khan spoke to a Julsi at Dongi ground (last Sunday) and they will show him tomorrow what a jalsa means. On October 11, he said, the competition is between jazba of PML-N and the qabza of PTI wherein former is sure to carry the day.

Hamza said that huge attendance of the PML-N voters in the rally is verdict against the PTI and a message that their conscience cannot be purchased by the PTI candidate.

The PML-N leadership, he said, has always upheld the values of decency but Imran Khan crossed all limits in this regard.

That is why, he said, the masses have rejected Imran Khan’s politics as they hate his foul tongue. He also blamed Imran for telling lies and said, Imran Khan cannot go to the bed unless he had levelled allegation and told lies.

Imran’s behaviour is not acceptable to conscious and loyal people of Lahore. He said that Imran Khan held the last general elections rigged but the Judicial Commission proved he was wrong.

Same way, the people will reject Imran Khan’s politics of lies by voting out the PTI candidate and supporting Sadiq to bring victory on October 11.

He also asked Imran Khan to shun the politics of protest and show maturity to take the country to its destiny of peace and prosperity.

He also commended the PML-N policies under Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, which he added, have brought about peace in Karachi, by rooting out terrorism and bring prosperity and development to the country.
