Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmad has warned JUI-F leaders and workers, gathering in Islamabad for Monday’s rally, to keep the Srinagar Highway open as per the Supreme Court’s orders and avoid disturbing peace in the federal capital ahead or during PTI’s rally at Parade Ground.
The minister said at a press conference that there are 6,000 Rangers and FC personnel and 9,000 to 10,000 other forces’ personnel available to ensure peace and security in Islamabad.
“The judicial orders and law will be followed no matter what outcome it produces,” Rashid said.
“You have the right to hold the rally but if you try to create a fuss, the Islamabad administration has a freehand to act upon the laws.”
Rashid rubbished the rumours that the roads in the federal capital are blocked, saying that the “entire Islamabad is open.”
He said that as an interior minister, he is trying to follow judicial orders, but violators of the law will not be spared.
Strict action will be taken against those who take the law in to their own hands, he added.
Moreover, Rashid said that the services of Interior Ministry’s command and control centre are available on the number +92066609218594 for seven days in case the citizens witness any inconvenience and find any road or way blocked.
PTI RALLY: Rashid urged the participants to reach early at the PTI rally as PM Imran Khan will address the rally around 5pm.
The minister said that he will join the caravan leaving for Islamabad for a while because he has to make other arrangements.
About the vote of no-confidence against PM Imran, he said the voting will be done on April 3 or April 4, “if the resolution is passed in the National Assembly on March 28.”
Interior Minister said that PM Imran will continue to play till the last over and the last ball.
“The greedy for power, who have programme till April 4 should keep in mind that PM Imran has become even more popular due to their ineligibility and incompetence.
