Azadi march: People urged to stay away from protests

Punjab minister asks Imran to stop being played by country’s ‘enemies’.


News Desk August 05, 2014

Punjab Labour Minister and provincial head of the Independence Day celebrations Raja Ashfaq Sarwar has urged people not to be part of any “anti-state activities”.

Sarwar took part in a flag-hoisting ceremony at the Rawalpindi Arts Council on Monday, according to a press release issued by the Punjab government.



A number of provincial ministers and district administration officials of the Rawalpindi Division attended the event.

“It is time to demonstrate national unity against anti-state elements. The people of Pakistan have always rejected those who tried to mislead them for their nefarious designs,” Sarwar said.

He urged Imran Khan to review his politics and avoid being played in the
hands of “the enemies of Pakistan”.

The minister said that the government is striving to overcome energy shortfall through various projects. “While the army is fighting terrorists, miscreants want to destabilise the country and disrupt the process of development.”

Elected representatives of the Pakistan Muslimg League-Nawaz and district coordination officers from the division briefed the minister about the Independence Day celebration plans in their respective districts.

They said entrances to district headquarters will be decorated. Sarwar said he will be visiting all the districts to review August 14 preparations and the party’s organisational affairs.

He said people’s participation in the celebrations shows their confidence in the government.
