ARMY to follow up on govt choice on Islamabad sit-in: DG ISPR

The Director General (DG) of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said on Wednesday the army would act upon whatever decision the government makes on the ongoing sit-in in Islamabad.

General Ghafoor, however, said it is better to diffuse the situation through mutual understanding, adding that whatever decision the government makes in this regard would be acted upon.

The DG ISPR said it is the obligation of the armed force for whatever assignment the administration calls it.”For the security of Pakistan, the regular citizen and military initiative are in agreement,” he said.Talks between the administration and nonconformists on Saturday and after that on Monday fizzled with not a single leap forward to be seen as challenge pioneers keep on demanding the renunciation of Federal Minister for Law and Justice Zahid Hamid.The administration, in any case, has shaped another board of trustees under senior priest Pir Haseenuddin Shah for transactions with the nonconformists and to recommend a far reaching answer for the issue.
