LAHORE: Vice president of Pakistan Muslim League-N Maryam Nawaz will leave here for Karachi by an early morning flight.

The party's spokesperson Marriyum Aurangzeb said Maryam Nawaz will leave for Karachi at 11am today. The PML-N leader will visit the mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammed Ali Jinnah, she said.

She will address a mass rally of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) today at the Jinnah Ground along with other Opposition leaders,  the spokesperson said. 

The PDM's Karachi rally is the second one after Friday's showing in Gujranwala. JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto also will address the rally. He has already landed in the city yesterday evening.

In Gujranwala, the PDM chief Fazl, Bilawal, and Maryam lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, telling him that his government's time was up.

Addressing a gathering of thousands at the venue, Maryam said that she was fighting for the businesses that had been destroyed during the incumbent government's tenure and the journalists who were being censored.

"People [journalists] who stood with the truth were fired from their jobs," she said.
