Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday chaired a meeting where he lauded Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar and Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) efforts in tackling the Islamabad ‘lockdown’.
The PM told Chaudhry Nisar that he performed his duties well in order to protect the state.
“I performed my duties under the guidance of the premier and I appreciate the trust and support from him,” the interior minister said.
“I also appreciated the police and FC personnel for standing by the law and state on the occasion,” he added.
The planned ‘lockdown’ was called off by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday after the Supreme Court’s decision to investigate a case linked to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, as demanded by the PTI. The ‘protest’, in fact, has been changed to a ‘Thanksgiving’ rally scheduled to be held at Parade Ground today.
