Army chief Ashfaq Parvez Kayani has not said any such thing which is unconstitutional and a threat to democracy in Pakistan, said Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.
He was talking to reporters in Arifwala, a rural town of Sahiwal district, where he had come to offer condolences to MPA Dr Farrukh Javed over the death of his father.
“Kayani had never said any word to create conflict with the orders of the Supreme Court of Pakistan,” Shahbaz said.
He said that decisions of the Supreme Court are never a threat to democracy in Pakistan and they will never be.
About the Asghar Khan case, he said the Supreme Court has not mentioned the name of a single politician in its decision and it has only said that the politicians did not abide by their oath.
Talking about the election strategy of PML-N, he said: “Our target is simply to completely defeat PPP not only in Punjab but across Pakistan.”
