LAHORE - In anticipation of the current political unrest spreading across Punjab, the provincial government has enforced Section-144 in the entire province.

It shall remain in force for 15 days.

The provincial Home Department on Sunday issued a notification directing all DCOs to ensure implementation of the said law in their respective districts. Gathering of more than five persons at a place is prohibited when Section-144 is in force.

The decision came when the PTI and PAT are planning to widen the spectrum of their protest movement at the district level.

The PTI held protest demonstrations in Lahore, Faisalabad, Sargodha and Multan on Thursday and more cities are going to witness sit-ins in the next few days.
