GUJRAT: Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Friday that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif is deciding on the appointment of a new army chief after consultation with fugitive Nawaz Sharif, while London’s drama is not staged for strengthening institutions but PML-N supremo will appoint army chief to the man who would help him in return.
Addressing long march participants in Gujrat through a video link, he said that the next army chief should be appointed on merit but the former PM will never let this happen as they wanted to save their theft by controlling the institutions.
The PTI chairman said that Shehbaz Sharif will now take decisions after meeting his fugitive brother in London.
“The one [Nawaz] who looted the country for 30 years will make decisions about army chief’s appointment, elections date and caretaker setup,” he said. “No one can even imagine that this can happen in a civilised society because rule of law prevails there.”
The PTI chief said since influential people get what they want, society was now witnessing anarchy as everyone who could not make ends meet resorted to theft.
He said that the leader of the biggest party of the country cannot get an FIR registered after an assassination attempt against him.
Imrna Khan said that these corrupt people are closing cases against them and pushing the country into darkness. The economy is drowning, industries are closing and foreign debt is rising rapidly, he added.
