Advisor to Prime Minister on Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Qamar Zaman Kaira has criticized Chairman PTI Imran Khan for creating unrest in the country through long march.
Talking to a private television channel, he said Imran Khan is lying to the nation in public meetings and trying to make the security institutions controversial. Qamar Zaman Kaira said the Prime Minister has full authority to appoint the army chief on merit.
He said the government is ready to hold talks with PTI for resolving political issues, but it will not accept any unconstitutional demand.
He suggested that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leadership should avoid issuing controversial statements which may harm the peace and stability of the country. “Unfortunately, PTI leaders have been issuing irresponsible statements soon after the firing incident, which should be avoided.”
Kaira said changing the government was purely an undemocratic and unconstitutional demand of the PTI. He said, “We are a strong believer in peaceful dialogue with political parties.” Unlike PTI leadership, the government’s representatives never issued any irresponsible statements and they only responded to their charges in a polite manner, he added.—INP
