If emergency situation is created in the country, then cooperation between the government and Armed Forces of Pakistan is compulsory so that the army and army should decide through mutual consensus: Ch Shujat Hussain

Lahore, May 11, 2022 (PPI-OT):Pakistan Muslim League (PML) President and former Prime Minister Chaudhry Shujat Hussain has said that these days attempt is being made to made to politics and army subject of discussion. Question being raised is whether the army should have a role in politics or not. Dictionary meaning of politics is reformation of circumstances and it means setting political, economic and social circumstances right.

Without going into detail, I would like to say that if emergency situation is created in the country then cooperation between the government and the Armed Forces of Pakistan is compulsory so that the army and army should decide through mutual consensus. He said this while talking to PML leaders Senator Kamil Agha, Jawwad Bhatti, Shafay Hussain and Rizwan Mumtaz Ali at his residence here today (Wednesday).

Ch Shujat Hussain said that for the government making the defence expenditures for achieving its political objectives to popularize its politics and being applauded should be declared as the highly irresponsible attitude but it is a matter of regret that such people instead of keeping the national interests in view, provide opportunity to the anti-state forces to be happy for getting applauded and raising of slogans in the public meetings.

Ch Shujat Hussain said that as for duties of the political government are concerned, it should take all essential steps for ensuring national security and solidarity and when needed using the constitutional powers call the security agencies and the Armed Forces of Pakistan for its help and in this regard all financial and other resources be used, if the government fails to disentangle the matters then national security can face dangers, in such grave situation if the civil government fails to provide the resources then in my view the Armed Forces of Pakistan and security agencies will be held responsible for pulling the country out of dangers in such a grave situation.
