Better if DG ISPR doesn't interpret political affairs: Asad Umar

Pak Army spokesperson categorically rejects 'regime change conspiracy' narrative

ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Asad Umar on Wednesday said that it would be better for the army and the country if the Inter-services Public Relations (ISPR) director-general does not interpret political affairs.

Addressing a press conference along with senior PTI leader and former federal minister Shireen Mazari in Islamabad, Asad Umar said that the facts written in the cable suggested an open threat was being given to Pakistan that if the no-confidence motion fails, Pakistan would have to pay the price and if Imran Khan is shown the door, then Pakistan will be forgiven.

PTI Secretary-General Asad Umar said Chairman Imran Khan will again write to Supreme Court to constitute a judicial panel and hold a transparent inquiry into the matter.

A day earlier, DG ISPR General Major General Babar Iftikhar on Tuesday categorically rejected regime change conspiracy narrative.

Speaking on Dunya News program On The Front With Kamran Shahid, the DG ISPR made it clear that all three service chiefs were present in the National Security meetings. The participants were briefed by the agencies that there was no evidence of regime change conspiracy, he added.
