ISPR reacted excessively, Imran Khan never named generals: Fawad Ch
Senior PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry said on Tuesday that the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) had "overreacted" because "Imran Khan had never appointed generals" during his jalsa in Faisalabad.
On Sunday, PTI chief and ex-PM Imran Khan issued a defamatory statement concerning the high leadership of the Pakistani army during his speech in Faisalabad, in response to which the military had said that he was “aghast” by the statements issued against it.
Clarifying the issue, Chaudhry stated that Khan was referring to the government’s inability to appoint military personnel to important positions.
The former minister of information claimed that for the appointment of the next chief of staff of the army, the coalition government would seek the approval of Nawaz Sharif.
Like Fawad, former Sindh governor Imran Ismail said that people should not misread what Khan said during the jalsa.
“Consider what he said as it is because he wants a chief of the army that is most suitable for this post,” Ismail said in defense of Khan.
