Army not 'Zamin' and 'Salis': Nisar
PTI and PAT had given impression that they had confidence in Pakistan Army
ISLAMABAD: Minister for Interior and Narcotics Control Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Friday said that government had only given role of facilitator to the army as per constitution and law.
Addressing a press conference, he said "Army was not given role of guarantor "Zamin" and mediator "Salis" as being said by Imran Khan and Tahir-ul-Qadri in their speeches. Role of facilitation by army is within constitutional ambit, he added.
Chaudhry Nisar said statement of ISPR on facilitative role of army had in fact endorsed the government's stance on the issue.
The ISPR's statement was issued in consultation with the government and after Prime Minister's read it, he said adding the statement reflected the government's point of view.
He said despite his clarification unconstitutional color and shape was being given to a meeting between the army hierarchy and the government on Thursday.
