RAWALPINDI - Former chief of army staff Aslam Beg has said that the drama of Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri is over and there is little danger to democracy in the country.
In an interview, the former army chief said that the army was not behind the sit-ins of Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri and nobody had assured them support of the army. He said that when the two leaders met Chief of Army Staff Gen Raheel Sharif, they were disappointed.
He said after that meeting, both Imran and Qadri tried to invade the parliament and the Prime Minister’s House to save their politics. He said after the failed attempt of raiding the state symbols, a situation of chaos and violence has emerged.
He said people are tired of dramatic speeches of the two leaders and soon Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would get out of Imran Khan's hand who himself destroyed his political future. Similarly, he said, the next destination of Tahirul Qadri is Canada. In reply to a question, Beg said that their game is over, there is little possibility of army intervention but the aims and objectives of Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri look very dangerous.
