ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said former DG ISI Lt General (Retd) Zaheer-ul-Islam will have to tell the people whether he was behind Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf’s sit-in or not.
He called for formation of a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to dig out the facts behind PTI’s 2014 sit-in. “The people need to know what happened during PTI’s 2014 sit-in,” the PM said while talking to a private TV channel yesterday.
Abbasi said that there were reports that Gen Zaheer and Imran Khan met several times during the dharna. However, the prime minister said he had no evidence to prove it.
The PM said that the constitution has the solution of every problem, adding that nothing will go wrong if all the institutions strictly follow the constitution.
“Judicial activism and NAB have paralysed the government,” Abbasi said. “Pakistan will suffer if the institutions cross their constitutional lines.”
“I am available for accountability and could be called to court but I won’t allow anyone to insult me or paralyze national institutions.”
PM Abbasi said the army didn’t summon the National Security Meeting on Nawaz Sharif’s interview but the security division did.
