All parties on same page for COAS extension: Sheikh Rasheed

Karachi (HRNW) Federal Railways Minister Sheikh Rasheed has said all political parties are on the same page regarding the extension in the tenure of Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa.“The army chief’s issue isn’t problematic. Everyone is unanimous on his extension. All parties are on board [with the federal government],” said Rasheed on Thursday while addressing the media in Karachi. According to Samaa tv Speaking about PPP co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari’s fake accounts case, Rasheed excused himself from answering and said: “The prime minister has specifically told me not to speak about the legal side.”When asked if there was any conflict between national institutions, Rasheed stressed that all institutions are on the same page. He added that PM Khan will complete his five-year-term. In a separate development, the federal government has decided to file a review petition against the Supreme Court’s verdict in the army chief extension case. Law Minister Farogh Nasim and the attorney general have prepared the first draft of the review petition.
