Imran Khan never requested meeting with current army chief: Fawad Ch

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Senior Vice President Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday debunked speculations regarding party chief and former premier Imran Khan requesting to meet Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir.

Fawad Chaudhry stated in a tweet that there was no truth to these rumours and that they were baseless and unfounded.

“Chairman Imran Khan has never made any request to meet the Army chief or any of his representatives,” he wrote adding, “likewise President has never approached Chairman PTI with any suggestion of Army Chief for meeting Shahbaz Sharif, speculations in this regard are baseless”

The story emerged after senior journalist Kamran Khan claimed in a tweet that the army chief told a group of business tycoons that he wanted to arrange a meeting between Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Imran Khan.

The message was conveyed to Khan through President Arif Alvi.

The tweet went on to claim that Imran Khan turned down the proposal and instead requested to meet the army chief.

However, the COAS denied meeting with the deposed premier as he wanted to keep himself distanced from politics.
