Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto has said that PTI chief Imran Khan’s politics was only revolving around the appointment of next army chief.Speaking to the media in Karachi on Tuesday, Bilawal said the appointment should be made according to the law and Constitution while advising against politicising the sensitive issue.

The foreign minister urged all political parties to avoid making controversial statements and demands regarding the appointment of the army chief during public rallies and gatherings.

His statement apparently came in response to the PTI chief statements wherein he raised doubts over the legitimacy of the incumbent government to appoint the army chief.Imran has been consistently saying that merit should be followed in such key appointments, while questioning how an “absconder and criminals” — a reference to incumbent rulers and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif — would be allowed to make the decision.
