He said ECP is a constitutional body and it is expected that the opposition will respect its sanctity. He said the PDM should know that the Supreme Court, the Parliament House and other institutions are situated on the Constitution Avenue and the government has taken all necessary security measures for their protection.
The Minister said for the first time, PDM has been allowed to organize its rally in the Red Zone and the law enforcement agencies will watch that whether any seminary student is participating in the oppositions' rally. He said the law will take its course if anybody attempts to take law into hands.
Answering a question, Sheikh Rashid said action will be taken if any baton or uniform clad group like Anasar-ul-Islam participates in opposition's rally.
To another question, the Minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan's party has submitted record of 40,000 transactions to the ECP, but the opposition is unable to produce record of just 4,000 people from whom it has received foreign funding.
