Islamabad, Dec 16 (ANI): The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Awami National Party (ANP) have demanded Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) chief Ahmad Shuja Pasha's resignation over alleged plot to oust the government that was backed by Opposition Leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan.
outspoken lawmaker of ANP's parliamentarian Bushra Gohar's demand for resignation of the ISI director general over his alleged plot to oust the PPP government as disclosed by mastermind of infamous Memo Gate scandal, Mansoor Ijaz.
Gohar said that the ISI Director General should resign from his position as the former ambassador Husain Haqqani was made to do so on the allegations when the memo case surfaced.
"How can an issue could be flimsy when the same was being portrayed true," the Daily Times quoted Gohar, as saying.
She said that if Haqqani set a good precedent by resigning from the office, it should be followed by the others who had been alleged in another case to conduct the transparent investigation and asked the Chaudhry Nisar to put the same demand.
Chaudhry Nisar backed the demand of Bushra Gohar, but made it clear that he never asked for the resignation of Haqqani.
"I simply demanded for the fair probe from the government," Nisar added.
He disclosed that it was his party, the PML-N, which pressed General Pasha to resign on the May 2 incident in a joint session of parliament and said that it was the responsibility of the government to seek resignation from him.
He, however, termed the ISI director general's disclosure by Mansoor Ijaz to topple the government fabricated one and questioned why the government had not clarified it so far.
"I don't think that ISI director general is unwise one to seek the help from the Arab countries," Nisar added. (ANI)
