Workers of PDM have also been arrested from Vehari, Dunyapur and Jhang.
It is to be mentioned here that the district administration has placed over 30 containers to seal the venue and cut off electricity connections in a bid to create hurdles for the organizers.
Workers at Qasim Bagh Stadium alleged that the equipment brought for the rally has been seized by the police and they were trying to bring in generators for the rally after the power connections were cut off.
