F.P. Report

LAHORE: Former president of Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Asma Jahangir has said non shedding of tears by any one over Musharraf and Gen (Retd) Raheel Sharif departure has proved that people want civilian government.

“people have not shed the tears on departure of Raheel Sharif and Pervez Musharraf. This is the decision of the people for change, she said this while talking to media men outside Lahore High Court (LHC) Friday.

It seems as if there is a perilous silence on both sides including government and army, she said.

Unfortunately establishment has created political consciousness in PML-N and people of Punjab have also decided that only civilians will rule, she stated.

This time people have proved by casting votes against establishment that they don’t want to side with establishment, she added.

Law and constitution is there in the country, she underlined. Therefore, every institution will have to remain within its ambit so that supremacy of state could be established, she remarked.
