PM to take ultimate decision on PSL final: Apex committee


LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif chaired the apex committee session today (Sunday) at CM House to deliberate over hosting the Pakistan Super League (PSL) final in Lahore and analyzing the overall security situation of the province.
National Security Advisor Nasser Khan Janjua, Corps Commander Lahore Lieutenant General Sadiq Ali, provincial minister Lieutenant Colonel Sardar Muhammad Ayub Gahdi, DG Rangers Major General Azhar Naveed Hayat, General Officer Commanding 10th Division Major General Tariq Aman, Chief Secretary Punjab Captain Zahid Saeed, Punjab Police IG Mushtaq Ahmad Sukhera, Home Secretary Punjab Azam Salman Khan and other high-level civil and military officials attended the meeting.
The apex committee was likely to adopt an official stand in the meeting whether to conduct PSL final in Lahore or Dubai, but the ball is in Prime Minister’s (PM) court now.
The security agencies have said in their respective reports that foolproof security will be given to all the players and spectators, but the committee has said that ultimate decision regarding PSL final will be taken by the PM Nawaz Sharif.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had earlier announced to conduct PSL final of second edition at Lahore’s Gaddafi Stadium on March 5, but the decision became doubtful after a fresh wave of terrorism hit parts of country including major cities like Lahore, Peshawar and Quetta.
