As per reports, the local administration locked gate no 5 of Iqbal Greater Park after the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was denied permission of holding a public gathering at the Minar-e-Pakistan, in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

The workers after breaking the lock of the gate had entered the park along with the equipment to install the stage for the public rally.
