Punjab Governor, Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar, said that the government has given free hand to opposition parties to hold protest rallies and protests and the government will neither be intimidated nor blackmailed by the threat of protests. Adding he said that the government will continue to serve the masses. He said that Imran Khan will also complete his constitutional term as the Prime Minister.
