If security agencies can’t provide protection, it leaves a question mark on them: Nisar

May 1, 2017

WAH CANTT: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said on Monday that if security agencies could not offer protection, then it would raise a question mark on their performance. 

Addressing participants gathered at an event to mark World Labour Day, Chaudhry Nisar said that he had received a report which had warned that a suicide attack could take place at the venue today.

"It doesn't matter how dangerous it was to attend today's gathering, I had to come here no matter what," he said. "Your task is to give the report, I will decide whether or not I will attend the event or not," he added.

Chaudhry Nisar said that he was a straight-forward person who was not a hypocrite but said whatever he had in mind regardless of fear. During his speech, Nisar also slammed the Musharraf-led government for not doing anything for labourers.

"Musharraf imposed a black law on labourers," he said. "Workers and labourers got their allowances in Nawaz Sharif's government," he added.
