FAISALABAD: The Pakistan Democratic Movement is all set to hold its gathering against inflation and government policies at the Dhobi Ghat ground here on Saturday (today).

Leaders of PML-N, JUI-F and other parties are expected to address the gathering.

According to local PML-N people, Nawaz Sharif would address the gathering from London via video link while Maryam Nawaz will be brought to the venue in a procession.
