ISLAMABAD: PTI chairman Imran Khan was reportedly cautioned after the change of command in the army by President Arif Alvi to strictly direct his leaders and social media team not to attack the new army chief and the military.
PTI’s leading spokesman Fawad Chaudhry when asked about the president’s reported message to Imran Khan, said that both the president and the PTI chairman were already clear that there would be no attack on the new military establishment and the army chief. “There can’t be a perpetual fight with the institution,” he said.
Fawad Chaudhry wondered why the PTI would criticise General Asim Munir, because his appointment was facilitated by PTI Chairman Imran Khan. He said that the new army chief brings new policy and the PTI hoped that what the military establishment under Gen (R) Bajwa allegedly did to the PTI during the last 7-8 months would not be done now.
