ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Pervaiz Rasheed on Tuesday termed those calling upon Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif to take over the country as fools.

“Such people are fools and do not want good for the country,” added the information minister.

The federal minister was also of the opinion that it is too early to discuss about the ‘extension’ in army chief’s tenure.

A little-known political party of Punjab had put up banners in 13 cities across the country with its leaders urging Gen Raheel Sharif to impose martial law and form a government of technocrats.

The banners had been put up in Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar, Quetta, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Hyderabad, etc, by the Move on Pakistan party and unlike its earlier campaign requesting the army chief to reconsider his retirement plan due in November the message is quite ominous this time around.
