No differences between military and govt, Fawad Chaudhry

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry on Thursday denied reports of differences between the government and military leadership over the appointment of the director-general of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

Talking to reporters in the Parliament House, the information minister said that the situation is “Allhamdollillah fine”.

“Everyone, at the turn of every hour, is trying to twist the matter to amass some popularity.”

He said that the process of DG ISI’s appointment has started and will complete soon and that “there’s no dispute between the government and the military”.

“Everyone is on the same page.”

Chaudhry said that the government respects all institutions.

Earlier in a social media post, Chaudhry said the game that a certain section wanted to play on the issue of the appointment has failed.

“Now it is being said that the prime minister will conduct an interview for the appointment of the new DG ISI. Meetings before such appointments are a normal practice,” he said.

He added that it is “highly inappropriate” to make such meetings controversial.
