MULTAN: Veteran politician Javed Hashmi said on Saturday he was not aware of the audio tape of ISI’s former chief Lt Gen Zaheerul Islam Abbasi as mentioned by PML-N Senator Mushahidullah Khan in an interview on Friday.
Addressing a press conference, Mr Hashmi said he, however, had received a phone call from another former ISI chief Lt Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha after he left the sit-in of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf.
“Gen Pasha threatened me that he would not spare me, Nawaz Sharif and Khawaja Asif, despite the fact that I had nothing to do with him over the issue,” he said
Mr Hashmi said PTI Chairman Imran Khan had informed him before the long march left for Islamabad that a technocrat government would be formed even if Nawaz Sharif did not resign as the chief justice would dissolve the assemblies.
He said he was told that the technocrat would hold the elections within three months and the PTI would come to power.
Mr Hashmi said he left the sit-in and returned home after his differences with the PTI chief as party’s core committee in the presence of Mr Khan had decided not to move the sit-in from D-Chowk as Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif had held out the assurance that Nawaz Sharif would resign if rigging in elections was proved.
