Federal Government has asked Khyber Pakhtunkhawa (KPK) Government to take effective measures to stop any movement of organized or armed mob towards the Federal Capital.

Federal Interior Secretary has written a letter to Chief Secretary of the province asking to take necessary steps to prevent unlawful congregations within the jurisdiction of KPK.

The letter drew attention towards various intelligence reports indicating intentions of a selected group of people to march on to Islamabad on Wednesday from KPK with a declared intention of paralyzing and holding hostage the people and government institutions in the Federal Capital. It said that certain Cabinet Ministers and members of the KPK Provincial Assembly intend to lead some of these processions alongwith their official and personal armed body guards. 

The letter says if it happens it will be a grave violation of law and in complete breach of public order since no permission has been given for such processions or protests.

The Interior Secretary said given the serious security and terror threats confronted at the moment, an added dimension is also clearly present against any such congregation.

The letter said not discharging the responsibility shall amount to a violation of the constitutional obligation of the Provincial Government for which it shall be responsible.
