ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry has said all issues between the civil and military leadership had been settled and a notification of the new Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) director-general would be issued during the current week.
Talking to reporters, Chaudhry denied reports that a new summary with names of candidates for the office of ISI chief had been sent to the Prime Minister Office.
Criticising the opposition, Chaudhry said, “It [opposition] is thinking that there are some differences between the government and security institutions but its euphoria is gradually fading.”
He said the opposition always talked about democratic credentials but ended up seeking a deal to evade accountability.
Opposition leaders are always ready with their curriculum vitae to jump on the bandwagon once they assume there are differences between the government and state institutions, Chaudhry said, adding that “when they come to know that they are not going to get any relief in their corruption cases from the government, their guns suddenly turn towards state institutions”.
The minister said basically the opposition was not only devoid of political thinking but also lacked administrative and economic policies.
