DG ISPR Should Have Resigned Instead Of Retracting Tweet: Aitzaz

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Aitzaz Ahsan said on Wednesday said that Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Maj-Gen Asif Ghafoor should have resigned rather than retract ISPR’s tweet.

“The Pakistan Army spokesperson should have resigned rather than take back his tweet,” said Aitzaz while speaking to a private TV channel.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif fired a senior adviser two weeks ago over a front-page article in the Dawn newspaper last year alleging a rift between civilian and military leaders over combating militancy.

The Army questioned the firing in a tweet, saying it was not in line with the findings of an inquiry set up to look into possible leaks.

Ghafoor earlier today held a press conference to clear the air regarding several major developments on the domestic and international front over the past few weeks.

ISPR released a statement saying the tweet had been withdrawn and that the issue had been settled.
