The interior minister denies the fact that they’ve arrested any leader of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). According to PDM, the government has arrested their leaders prior to their rally against the government.
Ijaz Shah, the interior minister, in response to the blame, said that no one is arrested from the opposition parties. The government has just blocked the roads so that there would be no chaos.
