ISLAMABAD: Musadik Malik, Spokesman to the Prime Minister, rejected the claims of political leaders about offering of Field Marshal's post to Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif by the government and termed such assertions as baseless.

"Such assertions are ridiculous. This issue was not discussed in any meeting," he said speaking at Samaa’s current affairs programme “Nadeem Malik Live” in response to a question relating to the statement of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan.

"Raheel Sharif is man of integrity and he has manifested it. The statements about offering him a new post were ridiculous," he added.

He said General Raheel had himself stated far before his retirement date that he was not interested in extension and his integrity was known to everybody.

He also ruled out any possibility of military intervention and said, there was no fear of umpire's finger as was claimed by the protestors during agitation at D-Chowk.

When he was questioned that the news was leaked by one of PML-N MNA, Malik insisted to name the person so that the confusions die down. "The MNA concerned should be named in this program so in future nobody shows courage to spread rumors on sensitive matters."

He welcomed the decision of PTI to move to apex court on the Panama papers and said, "it is welcoming that PTI is moving to the court. Let the Supreme Court decide on this matter now."

He said after that they had taken the legal course, we hope that past like hooliganism and damage to public property would be avoided during the PTI protests.

"We also desire that justice should be done. We also desire that their movement would be peaceful," Malik said.

Commenting on a remark by a participant about Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly, he stated that Syed Khurhseed Shah always stood firm for democracy and we appreciate him.

"This is in no way justified to state that he has been a sympathizer of the government. He is a sensible Opposition Leader and always represented the Opposition and his party," he remarked.

The spokesman said the government had offered to the opposition to nominate any officer of the FIA for inquiry on Panama papers. But, the PTI's habit of changing stances made things inconclusive as they opt to malign any institution which goes against their will.

He strongly condemned the statements of Indian leadership against Pakistan, specifically the statement of their Defence Minister and said, he might be seeing his own face in the mirror while issuing such statement about Pakistan. –Samaa
