It will be attended by the services chiefs, intelligence officials and civilian leadership. Federal Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid and National Security Adviser Moeed Yusuf would also attend the meeting.

In a previous NSC meeting, headed by Prime Minister Imran Khan, the forum had mulled over the ongoing situation in the aftermath of a violent protest from outlawed Tehrik-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) that had resulted in the martyrdom of multiple cops and destruction of public and private property. Taking serious note of the unprovoked violent attacks committed by TLP members, the committee had resolved not to tolerate any further breach of law by the proscribed group.

On the other hand, a meeting of the federal cabinet has been called for tomorrow (Tuesday) to review the political and economic situation of the country. A 16-point agenda of the meeting has been issued, according to which consultations will be held on local government polls in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab.
