Article 245 invoked to counter terror threats: Rashid
The information minister asks Imran Khan to bring his proposals for electoral reforms to the parliament.
Information Minister Senator Pervaiz Rashid has said that the Article 245 has been invoked in the backdrop of terror threat in the country.
In an interview, he said the Article 245 has nothing to do with political activities in the country.
The minister said army will be deployed at important buildings and defence installations. The Article 245 is meant to provide legal cover to it. He said the government has taken this step against any terrorist activities in the federal Capital.
Senator Pervaiz Rashid urged Imran Khan to come to the upcoming session of the National Assembly and give his proposals for improvement in the electoral system.
He said Imran Khan is trying to hide his party's failures in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, as PTI has failed to bring any positive change there.
