In his speech given on Wednesday, the PTI chief once again said that those who are making threats from unknown numbers should be answered. He had mentioned this while addressing a public meeting in Chakwal on Monday.
The PTI chief said that when he says that the army chief should be elected on the basis of merit, it means that Pakistan Peoples Party and Pakistan Muslim League should not become the next COAS from Nawaz as he is the most corrupt and does not have the qualification.
