Federal Minister for Interior Sheikh Rasheed on Sunday categorically said that the government is not negotiating with the banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP). 

While addressing the media on Sunday, the minister said, “We have been trying to reach a consensus with them for the past two months but they are not ready to compromise on their demands,” he said in a media talk on Sunday.”

Rasheed talking about the recent protest said that around 192 places were blocked by the protesters but they have been cleared.

“The situation is a bit tense at Yateem Khana Chowk in Lahore where the Jamia Masjid Rahmatul Lil Alameen is located,” Currently, all roads including the GT Road and the Murree Expressway are open.” he said. 

He explained that when an organisation is proscribed, bank accounts and identity cards of its stakeholders are blocked and their movement is restricted.

“TLP has been served a notice of three days and has been given a month’s time to submit its response,” Rasheed said.

Yesterday, all accounts and assets of Saad Rizvi, head of proscribed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) were frozen. His name was included in the fourth schedule, banning his movements, which would mean that in incase of movement, he would have to seek prior permission from relevant SHO.

The passport of Saad Rizvi has been blocked, while the government has also seized all movable and immovable assets of the TLP.
