Special Assistant to Punjab Chief Minister on Information Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan says the Punjab government decided not to give permission to the opposition parties to hold public gathering in the light of high threat alerts issued by District Intelligence Committee.
Addressing a news conference on Sunday, Firdous Ashiq said that PML-N leadership is trying to provoke people through narrative aimed at creating chaos and unrest among the public.
She said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government would not act irresponsibly as PML-N government did in past with innocent people at Model Town.
She said all activities of opposition alliance would be monitored through cameras and in case of any violation the law would take its course.
Dr Firdous said it is the responsibility of the government to implement court orders and to maintain law and order to ensure peaceful atmosphere.
She said that the government is fixing the issues including the economic crisis, poor law and order situation and destruction of institutions by the previous governments.
She, while calling the PDM Lahore rally a political circus said it is against the law. The government has not stopped any of the participants of the rally and not even a single obstacle can be seen anywhere in Punjab, she added.
