'Mother of All Deals' hinted with jailed former PM Imran Khan
Mushahid Hussain Syed, a senior leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and a prominent Senator, hinted at the possibility of a significant agreement with the imprisoned chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in a recent statement.
During an exclusive interview with ARY News, Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed, who also leads the Senate Standing Committee on Defence, expressed concerns about the management of "prisoner no. 804," suggesting that a monumental agreement may be on the horizon with the PTI leader.
In his conversation, the PML-N leader portrayed the ongoing rift between the PTI chairman and the Establishment as a complex matter akin to a "quarrel among lovers," hinting at the potential for reconciliation and forgiveness.
He highlighted the dire need for unity and cooperation among political factions for the betterment of Pakistan, stressing that the nation cannot afford further confrontation.
Furthermore, Senator Mushahid Hussain Syed acknowledged the military establishment's stance on internal accountability, emphasizing that they have their own mechanism for ensuring accountability within their ranks. This stance indicates a significant challenge in achieving transparency and external oversight of the military's actions.
Lastly, the lawmaker revealed that he did not participate in the London meeting where the decision to support the extension of Qamar Javed Bajwa as the Chief of Army Staff was made, underscoring a degree of detachment from key decisions within his own party's leadership.
