An intelligence report expressed fears of a terrorist attack in Wah Cantt citing that terrorists could carry out an attack at the POF complex in the Wah Cantt area at a Labour Day ceremony at the Pakistan Ordnance Factories (POF) complex.
Nisar along with two other federal ministers attended the ceremony today despite the security fears.
Three federal minister — Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Rana Tanveer Hussain, and Muhammad Barjees Tahir — attended a Labour Day ceremony at the POF complex.
Speaking on the occassion, Nisar said that if the lives of labourers at the POF complex in Wah Cantt are not safe, then even he does not care for his own life.
“If even the life of a Wah factory labourer is not safe then may God protect us all,” he said.” People told me to not here due to security threat. Those who are apreading these rumours are inane.”
The interor minister said that the prestige of Ordinance Factory is only due to its labourers.
