Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor has turned down Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo’s remarks that hinted at the manipulating the results of the no-confidence motion against the Senate chairman.
The military spokesperson in his tweet stated, “Remarks by Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo implicating head of national premier institution are unfounded.”
“The tendency to bring entire democratic process into disrepute for petty political gains doesn’t serve democracy,” he continued.
