DG ISPR responds over question of absence of COAS Bajwa from oath taking ceremony of PM Shahbaz Sharif
Replying to another question about the language being used for the COAS in certain public meetings, the military’s spokesperson requested the people to avoid using inappropriate words for the institution and its leadership. “It is not beneficial for anyone,” he added.
Maj Gen Babar underscored the need for coordinated measures to isolate the society from the effects of the propaganda at the government and individual levels.
The army is one of the main targets of this disinformation campaign, he admitted.
When asked a question about the absence of the army chief in the oath-taking ceremony of Shahbaz Sharif as PM, Maj Gen Babar said that he was not well on that day.
Speaking about the new elections, the military’s spokesperson said that the government and the politicians will decide that, adding, “nobody can suggest anything to them.”
