Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday reacted to Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan's remarks about former army leader Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, accusing the ex-premier of undermining Pakistan's foundation just for the rule.

The prime minister noted that PTI chief had also recently launched a diatribe against parliamentary democracy, reports Dawn.

“Imran’s politics is aimed at making his way to power, even if it meant undermining foundations this country stood on,” Prime Minister Sharif said on his Twitter handle.

PTI leader Imran Khan’s recent diatribe against parliamentary democracy was the latest in a series of attacks that flew in the face of how democracy functioned in modern nation-states, he wrote.

In a recent interview Imran Khan had said giving extension to Gen Bajwa as Chief of Army Staff (COAS) was his biggest mistake. This was also endorsed by former speaker National Assembly Asad Qaiser who also repented in a recent interview with e private TV channel that granting Bajwa an extension was a mistake.
