ISLAMABAD: In a major development, the government has ordered the civilian intelligence agencies to monitor the lawmakers ahead of the no-trust motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan, said well-placed sources.
The sources privy to the matter said that the development came during a meeting of the ruling PTI’s political committee held with PM Imran Khan in the chair today in Islamabad.
The spy agencies have been directed to monitor the lawmakers’ location, movement and record their phone calls.
The prime minister also directed strict monitoring of the Sindh House after reports surfaced that around 12 disgruntled MNAs of the ruling PTI are in the “safe custody” of the Opposition.
The intelligence agencies have been directed to submit the report to the PM on a daily basis.
