Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Wednesday that the party had taken a backseat on the appointment of the next chief of army staff (COAS).
Khan made the comments while speaking to journalists in Lahore. He said the party had now taken a backseat on the matter. The government, he said, may very well do as it pleases.
Khan said the incoming army chief should be one who secures the interests of both: the people and state institutions. No army chief, he said, contradicted the nation’s aspirations.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, he said however, aspired an army chief who would secure his interests. He said the PTI was being sent feelers on negotiations but had made it abundantly clear that the part sought the conduct of free-and-fair-general elections. This, the PTI supremo said, was the remedy for all the challenges confronting the nation.
Back street driving attempt.
I am the custodian of the interest of people hence ask me.
He believes military and PDM has not seen through it. Appeasement never works for narcs; it just make them more destructive. Institutions took a longtime to learn but they have learnt this the hard way.
No body falls for it any longer.
He is NOT in power and so what other seat can he take except the back seat? He suffers from delusions of grandeur.
