ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Tuesday said the Pakistan Army was not supporting the PTI and PAT marchers.

Talking to reporters in the Punjab House, the minister said that the security of Red Zone has been handed over to the army. "The military will guard important government installations in Red Zone, especially the Constitution Avenue," the minister said.

"I want to say this with full responsibility that the Pakistan Army is not behind this game." He, however, regretted that despite personal assurances, PTI Chairman Imran Khan breached a written and verbal agreement not to enter Red Zone.

"Security of these vital installations connot be compromised," he declared. The minister said the Foreign Office had arranged a briefing for the diplomatic community as they had apprehensions on security. He mentioned that the security has been divided into three rows: police, FC, Rangers, and finally army would guard the important installations in Red Zone.

Chaudhry Nisar requested both Imran Khan and Dr Tahirul Qadri to come to the negotiation table, offering them that the government would accept all their lawful demands. "We are ready to open recounting and detailed investigation of alleged voting irregularities in particular four or 20 constituencies," the minister said. The minister claimed that the availability of food and medicines had suffered and residents could not visit hospitals, medical stores and grocery shops.

"The anti-government sit-ins organised by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek have not only disrupted the routine life of residents but the diplomats and government employees are also facing trouble," he added.

The minister said Imran Khan was role model of the youth so he should behave like a leader not like a violator of law. Chaudhry Nisar condemned Imran Khan's speech of announcing civil disobedience movement and said that it really upset him.
