Rangers not providing security to parliament building for last two days

Pakistan News 0 Comment 6

Rangers have not been providing security to the National Assembly building for the last two days in the wake of the controversy over the paramilitary force’s deployment at the Federal Judicial Complex on Monday.

Only police and Elite Force personnel are deployed outside the parliament, Express News reported. The parliament’s security staff has informed the speaker and deputy speaker’s offices about the development.

Will resign if I can’t find out who deployed Rangers at court: Ahsan

On Monday, Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal had threatened to resign after he and senior PML-N leaders, accompanying Nawaz Sharif for the hearing of a corruption reference against the deposed prime minster, were barred from entering the courthouse by Rangers officials.

It was not clear as to who called the Rangers. Just hours after the interior minister protested, the Islamabad administration issued a statement, saying that it had not sent for the paramilitary forces. The accountability court judge also told reporters that he had not sought the deployment.

Speaking to the media outside the court, Iqbal asked whose orders the Rangers was following, and promised an inquiry into and disciplinary action over the incident. He said that he might resign in protest if he could not hold the institution which works under his ministry accountable.
