Military coup 'not possible' in Pakistan ever: Gilani

Davos, Sun, 29 Jan 2012 ANI

Davos, Jan 29 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has said a military coup is not a possibility in Pakistan in the present scenario, as the army desired democracy and stability in the country.


On the sidelines of the World Economic Forum, Gilani said: "I don't think there will be a coup in Pakistan ever. There is no threat to democracy."


Gilani said no state institution, military or the people of Pakistan want a coup and all are in favour of democracy.


After the Memo Gate scandal broke out, there were speculations that a military coup will take place in the country.


Earlier, the Pakistan military had rubbished reports of a coup amid the recent tension over the Memo Gate scandal.


The alleged confrontation between the military and the government became more apparent following the military taking on Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani over the sacking of the Defence Secretary, and the appointment of a new commander of the 111 Brigade.


However, the military brass expressed surprise and concern over the repeated reports of a possible military coup and decided to hold briefings from the platforms of parliamentary committees of the National Assembly, the Senate and special panels, which deal with national security and defence-related matters, to address the misgivings of the elected leadership.


Earlier, the US had also rejected such speculations, with many analysts saying that a military coup in Pakistan was "unlikely" at this point in time.(ANI)
