He said that he could assure that the new army chief will not bear the brunt of any political turmoil.
Rasheed said that Khan gave a clear statement that he has no connection with the key appointment. “I told Imran Khan that it would be better if he gives this statement a few days ago.”
“Imran Khan told me that he rejected the option of a long-term caretaker government. I am unaware of what Imran Khan would do after reaching Rawalpindi. However, I know well about him that he has the strength to take stay on the streets as long as it is needed. He may conclude his rally in Rawalpindi in the daylight.”
