Pakistan’s issues should be discussed in Parliament, not Army headquarters: Maryam

PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz said that the matters concerning Pakistan should be discussed in Parliament, not the General Headquarters (GHQ), the headquarters of the Pakistan Army located in Rawalpindi.

Her remarks came after journalists asked her about the meeting held between PML-N leaders Shehbaz Sharif and Khawaja Asif and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa and Inter-Services Intelligence Director General Lt Gen Faiz Hameed at the GHQ.

“I don’t know if they met for dinner or not but I have heard about the meeting,” she said while speaking outside the Islamabad High Court on Wednesday. “I think they were called to discuss the Gilgit-Baltistan issue. It is a political matter and all representatives were there to solve and deliberate.”

These decisions should be made in Parliament, not GHQ, she remarked. The political leaders should not have gone there and whoever wants problems resolved should come to the National Assembly, she said.
