PTI Will Not Spare Former COAS Bajwa: Najam Sethi
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) will not spare erstwhile Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa, The Friday Times (TFT) editor Najam Sethi said on Friday.

Sethi made the comments in flagship Naya Daur show Khabar Say Aagay. He said the PTI will not stop harassing the retired top military boss irrespective of wherever he went. They have yet to let go of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam, he said.

PTI chairman Imran Khan, he said, was striving to return to Parliament. He said the government will indeed have talks with the PTI. Dissolution of legislatures, he said, was not in their interest. Khan, Sethi said, had been wanting to save face since long and had been looking to return to Parliament to negotiate with the government over the conduct of general elections.

Sethi said recent claims of the retired COAS directing now Punjab Chief Minister Pervaiz Elahi to support Khan were untrue. All he said in a call to Pervaiz's son Moonis was that the establishment had turned neutral and the PML-Q was free to do as it deemed fit.

A retired general had however reached Pervaiz and instructed him to support Khan, Sethi said. The star journalist said he agreed with Khan on the no-confidence motion tasting success courtesy Bajwa's no-interference assurance.
