Islamabad, Mar.22 (ANI): While the political chaos in Pakistan may have died for the time being, the political fraternity of the country has now demanded that the Army, which regularly downed speculation of taking over the reigns during the turmoil, must accept the sovereignty of Parliament.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawazs (PML-N) president of the Sindh province, Syed Ghous Ali Shah, has asked the Army to accept the authority of the Parliament to ensure stability of the country.
The army will have to decide once and for all about the sovereignty of parliament. It will have to accept that everyone should work under parliament, Dawn qouted Shah, as saying.
Addressing a press conference at the National Press Club here, Shah commended the positive attitude shown by the Chief of the Army Staff General Ashfaq Kayani during the recent spate of political chaos.
He charged the former President General Pervez Musharraf of treason, but dodged queries about whether his party would file a sedition case against him.
The nation has risen up. It will give its opinion on this and all other issues in due course of time, tomorrow if not today, Shah said.
It may be recalled that Shah was sent on forced exile to Britain during the Musharraf regime and returned to Pakistan August last year ending his nine year deportation.
Commenting on a possibility of the PPP and PML-N joining hands, he said: It all depended Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif. (ANI)
