LAHORE, Dec 24: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Barrister Aitzaz Ahsan has dispelled the impression that he is joining the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI).
“I have no plans to join any other political party, including the PTI,” he told reporters here on Saturday.
Welcoming the PTI for becoming third political force in the country, he predicted that its Dec 25 public gathering in Karachi would be a historic event.
The former Supreme Court Bar Association president said that Javed Hashmi’s joining the PTI was a big blow to the PML-N.
He expressed concerns over prime minister’s “contradictory” statements regarding the army. He said the prime minister claimed on the one hand that the army obeyed the democratic government but on the other contradicted himself by saying in the Supreme Court that it (army) did not.
The rumours of martial law had ended after the army chief’s clarification. “There are few friends who want clash between the army and the government but it will not happen,” he added. — Staff Reporter
