The PML-N leader was due to address a protest rally in the city, but announced that the convoy had been cut off.
“My rally has been stopped by police. The miles long rally has been blocked by putting containers. I am at the head end. Rest of the rally has been cut off,” wrote Maryam.
Earlier, as the convoy made its way to the destination, the PML-N leader lauded the spirit demonstrated by the droves of supporters who she said “had disregarded the containers [blocking the pathways] and the threat of arrests to come out and show their love and commitment for Nawaz Sharif”.
Upon her arrival in the city late Sunday evening, Maryam took to Twitter to express her gratitude to the “ocean of people” gathered to welcome her.
Maryam had left the family residence Jati Umra in Lahore on Sunday afternoon for Faisalabad.
Talking to the media before leaving, Maryam said that a “government that has to shut down [opposition] leaders, that has to arrest political workers, block rallies and roads is counting its last days”.
