RAWALPINDI: Director-General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor on Friday dismissed Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo’s allegations implicating the head of a national premier institution as “unfounded”.
In a post on Twitter the DG ISPR said, “Remarks by Senator Mir Hasil Bizenjo implicating head of national premier institution are unfounded. The tendency to bring entire democratic process into disrepute for petty political gains doesn’t serve democracy.”
The remarks by the military’s media spokesperson follow Bizenjo’s comments after the secret ballot in the Senate on Thursday.
Senate Chairperson Sadiq Sanjrani and Deputy Chairperson Saleem Mandviwalla survived no-confidence resolutions tabled against them.
The no-confidence motion against Sanjrani failed to receive the 53 votes required for his removal. 50 votes were received in favour of the resolution with five votes being rejected.
