Nawaz tried to undermine army, alleges Pervaiz

LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid senior leader Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi has said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has tried to undermine the army over the news leak issue.

“The premier got issued an incomplete notification under a plan on the news leak issue and tried to undermine the army,” he alleged talking to a lawyers’ delegation at his residence here on Monday.

Mr Elahi said it was not the first time that Nawaz Sharif did not let go an opportunity to target the army.

Mr Elahi said the army was in a state of war both within and outside Pakistan and offering sacrifices.

“In this state of war how can the army remain silent over leakage of national secret from the Prime Minister House. There has been concern in the army ranks. Nobody will be ready to accept that any functionary of the Prime Minister House leak sensitive information about such a high-level meeting. The nation is justified in demanding that real culprits behind this episode be exposed and given an exemplary punishment,” Mr Elahi said.
