The Punjab home department on Thursday sent a summary to Chief Minister Punjab Usman Buzdar for the revocation of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP)’s proscribed status, report Geo.

According to a statement by the provincial home department, the summary has been forwarded to the chief minister after formal approval was accorded by the Punjab cabinet’s sub-committee on law and order.

After approval from the chief minister and the provincial cabinet, the federal government will be moved to do away with TLP’s proscribed status, said the home department.

Earlier today, in compliance with a secretive deal between the government and the proscribed TLP, the Punjab government decided to remove the names of at least 90 activists of the proscribed outfit from the fourth schedule.

The decision was taken during a meeting chaired by Law Minister Punjab Raja Basharat in Lahore.

The meeting also decided to release 100 more activists of the proscribed organisation from different jails in the province. It reviewed the decisions taken by the steering committee formed to deal with all TLP-related matters.

Punjab Inspector General of Police (IGP) Rao Sardar Ali Khan, Additional Chief Secretary Home Zafar Nasrullah and others were present in the meeting.
