RAWALPINDI: Rejecting the allegations levelled by Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Babar Iftikhar said on Monday that the Pakistan Army has nothing to do with politics.
“Army should not be dragged into politics”, DG ISPR Major General Babar Iftikhar said while talking to a private television channel.
He rejected the rumours of having backdoor contacts with the PDM and added that the Armed Forces have nothing to do with politics.
The army is busy discharging its constitutional responsibilities, the DG ISPR added. The spokesperson of the Pakistan Army urged to avoid raising allegations without proof.
The ISPR chief separately said that India has been exposed to a great extent before the world while noting that the military has shared details regarding Indian terrorism in a previous press conference.
On the other hand, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said that every state institution has its own role and Pakistan Army is performing its due role in safeguarding the country’s boundaries. He added that politicians should also do their work.
Commenting on PDM, he said that Maryam Nawaz deliberately tried to make the army controversial through her baseless allegations. There are people in the PDM who are doing positive politics, he added. – TLTP
