Rangers deployed in Punjab as TLP march begins

ISLAMABAD: The proscribed Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) has started its march towards Islamabad again, while the government has decided to summon the Punjab Rangers to maintain the law and order situation in Punjab.

Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid on Wednesday announced that the government had decided to summon the Punjab Rangers to maintain the law and order amid the ongoing protests staged by the TLP.

Speaking during a press conference in Islamabad, the minister said the government wants to establish peace as there is a lot of international pressure on Pakistan. “We have decided to summon the Rangers for a period of 60 days,” Sheikh Rashid said. “Like Karachi, Rangers have been called in Punjab under Section 4(2) of the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997, read with Article 147 of the Constitution of Pakistan,” he said.
