He however advised that schools suspend classes in case of any chaotic situation.


The police hierarchy said over a thousand policemen and women have been engaged to maintain normalcy.


Protestors were also warned to refrain from gathering tomorrow, or will be arrested and charged if they do not obey this directive.


All station commanders and provincial police commanders have been summoned to disband any individual or groups from the planned protest march tomorrow.


The police hierarchy thanked the people for the peaceful gathering yesterday; however, they said they will not entertain any protest planned for tomorrow.


A similar warning was issued to protestors in the 21 other provinces of the country.
