MULTAN: For the first time in the country’s history, the army has saved democracy, Javed Hashmi said on Saturday. He was talking to reporters at his residence in Multan. “The sit-ins drama is over now. The army has realised that there is no place for dictatorship in today’s Pakistan,” he said. “I am still the president of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI). I have not received any show-cause notice. I will soon issue a show-cause notice to Shah Mehmood Qureshi, the PTI’s vice-chairman, asking him to explain why he had contested the 2013 elections from Ghotki as an independent candidate,” Hashmi said. “If the party issues me a show-cause notice, I shall reveal some more facts,” he said. He said he would not resign from his party office.
