There is a provision in the Constitution that the police force should be handed over to the Province.
But, the federal government is not in a mood to adjust the police force.
Minister Sah had served a seven-day ultimatum by organising a press conference after the prime minister did not take any initiatives to take the process of adjusting the police force ahead despite their repeated request.
He said that they were compelled to stage the protest after the federal government did not hand over the police force within the given time frame.
Sah said that they would continue the protest against the federal government until their demands are met.
