KP govt asks opposition to shelve Peshawar rally due to terrorism threat
PESHAWAR: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has urged the opposition parties to postpone their Peshawar rally in view of the potential threat of terrorism.
In a statement after a meeting with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Mahmood Khan in Peshawar, Provincial Minister Shaukat Yousafzai offered the opposition parties to hold talks on all issues except the accountability matters.
He said Peshawar had recently witnessed a tragic terrorism incident in which innocent children of a madrassa were targeted.
Shaukat Yousufzai said the provincial government would not impose any ban on rallies and processions but would give full security to it.
However, he said the opposition parties should not play with the lives of people to save the corruption of some leaders.
