Calling for unity, the JUI-F leader said there was a pressing need to band together and find ways out of this ‘distressing’ situation.

Moreover, during the presser, he also touched on the chaos stirred by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) regarding the appointment of the new chief of army staff and lambasted former premier Imran Khan over his recent statements.

“Imran Khan is attacking all institutions including the army, his politics is over,” claimed Fazl.

He went on to add that whomever the government appoints as the new army chief should not concern the PTI supremo.
