LAHORE: The Punjab Home Department has imposed Section 144 across the province for 7 days. This decision has been taken in view of PTI’s call for a nationwide protest at 2pm today to protect the sanctity of the vote.

According to the orders issued by the Punjab Home Department, Section 144 will remain enforced throughout the province from June 21 to 27.

According to the Home Department, due to the current situation of public order and security threats in the province, any public gathering of people can be a soft target of terrorists and miscreants, which can be a serious threat to law and order. According to the Home Department order, there will be a ban on all kinds of gatherings, sit-ins, rallies, processions, protests, meetings and other such activities in Punjab from June 21 to 27.
