ISLAMABAD: Minister for Interior Rana Sanaullah Khan on Saturday warned the PTI leadership to exercise restraint and avoid disrupting peaceful proceedings of tomorrow’s by-elections in Punjab.

“The law will take its due course if anyone tries to sabotage the writ of the state by indulging in unlawful activities,” he said.

The interior minister’s warning was also addressed in particular to PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

A day earlier, Sanaullah said that he has received reports that “over 500 miscreants of the PTI” have been brought to Punjab to “sabotage” the elections process.

A plea seeking permission for appointing polling agents hailing from outside the concerned constituency is part of the conspiracy, Sanaullah added.

“Imran Khan has lost elections and is preparing to fight with the masses,” he said and warned Khan and the PTI’s tiger force to remain within the ambit of the law.

Lashing out at the PTI, the interior minister alleged that the party has made a plan of clashes among Pakhtoon and Punjabi brothers. He accused PTI’s Pervez Khattak, Asad Qaiser, Ali Muhammad Khan and Murad Saeed of sheltering the “miscreants”.

Khan would be responsible for the consequences if PTI’s tigers attempt to “disrupt the elections”, he said, adding that the government would not allow them to steal the mandate of the people in the 20 constituencies.

He vowed to ensure fair and peaceful by-elections in the province tomorrow.

Special control rooms set up
