Extension For General Raheel Sharif, PM Nawaz Sharif Gave Final Answer.
Nawaz sharif said that PMLN does not want to take this decision quickly, we will take our time and then give final answer. Government is not showing any interest in extension for raheel sharif. While the nation stands with army.
Banners are being posted in various cities of Pakistan.
A Punjabi political party seems to be responsible for the plastering of 13 cities with posters around Pakistan calling for Chief of Army Staff Gen Raheel Sharif to declare martial law and remove the duly elected ruling party of the Islamic republic.
Thirteen cities including Karachi, Peshawar, Quetta Lahore and others saw motorists reading a message for Gen Raheel Sharif to change his mind to not only retire but to wrest control away from the legitimate government of the sovereign nation. Earlier this year, Sharif announced his intention to retire. The posters read “Janay ki baatain hui puraani, Khuda k liye ab ajao” which essentially translates to “Talks of your departure our old and is time for you take over immediately.
According to a party leader, Ali Hashmi, in and interview with “Dawn” the party wishes General Sharif to supervised the transition to a group of unelected officials the party supports.
Government officials remove the advertisements in Faisalabad and Lahore early in the day with other cities expected to follow suit according to Hashmi in the same interview.
The Move on Pakistan Party were able to put up the banners and posters despite high security in a number of these areas. The party is relatively new with a three-year existence that was filed three years ago with Mohammad Kamran, a Faisalabad businessman listed as the organizations chairman. He was business interests throughout the country including schools in Sargodha and Lahore.
This is not the first time that the party has expressed its support for the long-standing general with February posters calling on the iconic leader of the army to remain in his position and “help in eradicating terrorism and corruption.”
