From the last 3 days, there are posters observed on roads of main cities across Pakistan that are praising Army Chief General Raheel Shairf asking him to take over the country.
The banners are seen in Lahore, Karachi, Peshawar, Quetta, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Hyderabad. This is kind of campaign launched by Pakistan party. This political party came into being this February when it put up posters and banners across the country asking the army chief not to retire and “help in eradicating terrorism and corruption”. This time the party said that “there is no choice but to enforce martial law and form a government of technocrats”.
The absence of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif from the country has made it realize that there was no need of a political government and people think that those who have been running the country will keep running it.
There was negative propaganda as soon as these posters were displayed all over the country. The propaganda was that army is behind this and few media houses spread this propaganda. Yesterday DGISPR Lieutenant General Asim Bajwa stated in a tweet that Pakistan army or any affiliated organisation has nothing to do with banners having pictures of Raheel Sharif and urging him to impose martial law and take control of the country.
Pakistan Army has nothing to do with posters begging the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif to impose martial law and take control of the country.
