ISLAMABAD - Secretary General Pakistan People’s Party Syed Nayyar Hussain Bukhari Friday criticised the caretaker government for allegedly providing Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chief Imran Khan “an army of Rangers officials to guard Banigala Palace.”

In a statement, Bukhari said Imran Khan had been provided “unusual protocol” and over 300 Rangers jawans (soldiers) had allegedly been deployed at Banigala to protect Imran Khan from his own disgruntled workers.

“A large number of policemen have also been deployed at Banigala. Interior Minister Azam Khan is behaving like a PTI worker. This amounts to pre-poll rigging,” he said. The PPP leader said that on one hand a politician who had soft corner for Tehreek-e-Taliban and terrorists was being provided with foolproof security and on the other the politicians who have real threat to their security were left with no security. He demanded of the caretaker government to justify such disparity in security matters and restrain from being biased.
