With 14th of August right on the edge, there is a massive security threat throughout the country. Pakistan is currently in a state of war against Tehreek E Taliban as the army is currently going through Operation Zarb E Azab.
Therefore, Punjab Government is of the opinion that chances of having a critical security condition on 14th of August are quite high. This is the reason why it is being decided that army rangers will be kept on standby throughout 14th of August.
To make the security situation worse, the president of Pakistan Tehreek E Insaaf, Imran Khan, has stated that he will be conducting a long march all the way to the capital. He claims that he has certain points that he needs to put forward in front of the government and also stated that these points revolve around free and fair elections and other ‘secrets’ which he thinks can topple the government.
The government, on the other hand, has acted quite immaturely regarding the situation as they are placing containers around the capital city so no one can enter and this long march can end even before it starts.
The containers have already been placed around the Faizabad region, and now people are awaiting the decision of Imran Khan regarding the matter.
