Rangers, Frontier Constabulary personnel to be deployed around NA and Parliament Lodges from March 20: Interior Minister

“Those who make money by selling their conscience will not be successful,” he said, adding that “honest people stand together in difficult times.

ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid said that Frontier Constabulary and Rangers personnel are being deployed around the National Assembly and Parliament Lodges in Islamabad from March 20.

Interior minister said that the people in city will observe local holidays on March 21, 22 and 23 on account of the annual parade to be held on March 23.

Sheikh Rashid said the decision to deploy the security personnel was the outcome of charged political activities in Islamabad.

‘Political Gandasa’

Interior Minister gave a firm assurance for the full protection to the National Assembly members and Parliament Lodges. He said the opposition will be provided security for its public gathering scheduled for March 25, adding that the ruling party will be holding its rally on March 27.

However, the minister claimed that after March 25, he will be taking out his “political gandasa” as the ruling party will get down to making the “right decisions at the right time’.

Rashid further claimed that “some individuals” were present inside the Sindh House and that people were engaging in horse-trading there.

“Those who make money by selling their conscience will not be successful,” he said, adding that “honest people stand together in difficult times. The umpires are neutral and the MNAs will decide whether to vote for or against the no-trust motion”.

The minister expressed his confidence in Prime Minister Imran Khan’s success; “win or lose, I will stand with him,” he added.
