According to the sources of Daily Notable, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Monday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) “disgusting” smear campaign against Chief of Army Staff General Asim Munir at the behest of Imran Niazi deserved the strongest condemnation.
The Prime Minister said on Twitter that Imran Niazi, in his desperation for power, is sinking to unprecedented lows and going to the extent of damaging the country and undermining its armed forces and its leadership.
The campaign against the COAS was intolerable and a continuation of the conspiracy against national institutions, according to a PM Office press release.
The prime minister urged overseas Pakistanis to raise their voices against the “foreign-funded” campaign. He said that when a dirty political game is being played through expatriates, they should not become part of the conspiracy.
He said Imran Khan was violating the constitution by involving institutions and their leadership in his “dirty” politics.
The Prime Minister also directed the Home Secretary to deal strictly with those who are running such smear campaign against the institutions.
He also warned of strict legal action against those fomenting chaos and disruption in the country. The campaign against the army chief, who was appointed purely on merit for the first time in the country’s history, could only be the agenda of anti-Pakistan elements, he added.
“The whole nation stands behind its institutions and is united against evildoers,” the prime minister noted. – PUNA
