Article-245 invoked to counter terror threat: Pervaiz
Information Minster says government has taken the step against any terrorist activities in the Federal Capital.
Information Minister Pervaiz Rashid has said that Army would be deployed at important buildings and defence installations in Islamabad and Article-245 is meant to provide legal cover to it.
In an interview, he said the government has taken this step against any terrorist activities in the Federal Capital.
He said Article-245 has been invoked to counter terror threat in the country and not for political reasons.
Pervaiz Rashid urged Imran Khan to attend the upcoming session of the National Assembly and give his proposals for improvement in the electoral system.
Responding to PTI Chairman's allegations, the Minister said Imran Khan lacks the courage to condemn the terrorists or challenge them.
He said Imran Khan's politics is based on hatred and lies.
Pervaiz Rashid said PTI Chairman is also conspiring to create differences between federation and provinces. He said Imran khan has not yet prayed for the success of the Zarb-e-Azb operation against the terrorists.
