No one will be allowed to take law into own hands: Dr Firdous


ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Prime Minister’s Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Saturday said the protest was democratic and basic right of every citizen and the government supported it, but it wouldn’t allow anyone to take law into own hands.

In reply to a question when she briefed media in Islamabad on Friday’s important meetings presided over by Prime Minister Imran Khan, Dr Firdous said thought the meetings had nothing to do with sit-in but she categorically said the exploitation of people would not be tolerated in the guise of religion.

Dr Firdous said in a meeting, the prime minister took strict notice of the rising inflation, and directed the authorities concerned to take steps to bring down the price of flour.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said the prime minister also expressed anger over the increase in price of sugar, and directed to take strict action against profiteers and hoarders.

The prime minister, she added, also sought suggestions from various ministries to bring down the prices of essential items of daily use.

Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said the price of flour increased in Sindh as the provincial government did not make purchase of wheat on time. She said the prime minister directed to release 100,000 tons of wheat immediately for Sindh.
