PESHAWAR: The local police are to divert traffic on alternative routes to avoid traffic jams due to sit-in in support of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik on Ring Road on Monday.
The sit-in in the provincial capital remained peaceful unlike other parts of the country.
A complete traffic and security plan has been chalked out to ensure smooth flow of traffic. The traffic flow was already affected due to the construction work of bus rapid transit on GT Road.
Capital city police officer Mohammad Tahir said an awareness and education campaign will be carried out all over the city by traffic sergeants to educate commuters about taking alternate routes.

The official said the overall situation is under control. Processions from various areas are allowed to protest untill they remain peaceful and dont involve in posing danger to life and property of citizens and the state.
