iAll Round View (Peshawar): Prime Minister Imran Khan said the opposition’s real issue with the military was that unlike other institutions, they were unable to “control” the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) after the agency “found out” about their alleged corruption.
Addressing a ceremony organized by the Insaf Lawyers Forum (ILF) in Islamabad, he said PML-N supremo and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif “fought with every army chief” because he wanted to turn the military into Punjab police.
Prime Minister Imran once again mocked Nawaz over his avow that ex-ISI chief Zaheerul Islam had asked him to resign as the prime minister, saying: “Why did he (Islam) say that? And why did you (Nawaz) silently hear that? Because Zaheerul Islam knew how much money you had stolen.”
He said the opposition had tried to “blackmail” the government over the passage of legislation for the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and now wanted to expel the government because the country was coming out of the crisis.
On the occasion, Prime Minister Imran Khan promised health cards for all lawyers and said the government would facilitate them in prevail houses through the Naya Pakistan Housing Programme.
