The walls and stands of the football ground of Company Bagh, Sargodha have been demolished in order to widen the space for the upcoming political rally of the Pakistan Muslim League N.
According to details, the city administration has demolished the stands and other structures in the football ground in order to provide better security measures to the leaders of the party.
