Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan on Thursday said that the Punjab government would maintain stringent security during Ramadan.
“All city and district police officials have been asked to develop a foolproof security plan for Ramadan,” he informed.
He revealed that on Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif’s special directives, security measures would be enforced around mosques and Imambargahs during Fajr and Taraveeh prayers, while additional police forces would be deployed at main bazaars, shopping plazas and commercial areas.
According to the security plan, four policemen would guard category-A mosques while two policemen would be deployed at category-B mosques.
The minister said that police officers had also been asked to make surprise visits to different areas and police stations to personally monitor their subordinates’ performance.
He warned that DPO, SDPO and SHO concerned would be responsible for any negligence.
Answering a question, Rana Sanaullah said that essential items would be made available at the cheapest rates at Sastay Ramadan bazaars.
He said that the government had already allocated Rs 4 billion for establishing over 200 Ramadan bazaars across the province.
