PM Nawaz must clear his position: Asad Umar

ISLAMABAD: PTI central leader Asad Umar has urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday to take a clear position in wake of the allegations levelled by Federal Minister Mushahidullah Khan against former Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Lt Gen Zaheerul Islam.

Mushahidullah, Minister for Climate Change, in a media interview had alleged that the “former head of ISI had devised a conspiracy to remove the elected government.”

PTI’s Asad Umar in his tweets termed the denial by the government insufficient, saying if the allegations levelled by the minister proved to be true, the former DG ISI and his accomplices should be tried for “planning and encouraging an act of treason.”

He said if the accusations against the former ISI chief turned out to be false, Mushahidullah should be sacked from his job as the minister and ousted from the party.

In another tweet, Umar said similar allegations had been earlier levelled against DG ISI by the Defence Minister Khwaja Asif and hence it was time this trend was put to rest.

He stressed that the prime minister should clear his stance by taking action against his ministers for levelling false allegations if he disagrees with them.
