BBC Urdu story published on Sunday is totally baseless & a pack of lies: ISPR
RAWALPINDI ( Web News )
Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) has said that British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) Urdu story published on Sunday is totally baseless and a pack of lies.
According to a statement issued by ISPR on Sunday, the typical propaganda story lacks any credible, authentic and relevant source and violates basic journalistic ethos. There is no truth in the fake story whatsoever and clearly seems part of an organised disinformation campaign. The matter is being taken up with BBC authorities.
Meanwhile the BBC has claimed that due to non-issuance of timely notification the bid to remove Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa was foiled.
It is pertinent to mention here that Imran Khan was ousted as prime minister as the no-confidence motion moved by opposition parties against him succeeded on Sunday night.
As many as 174 votes were cast in the favour of a no-confidence motion against Imran Khan. This is the first time in the history of Pakistan that a no-confidence motion against an elected prime minister has succeeded.
The joint opposition needs the support of at least 172 lawmakers from a total of 342 to oust the premier through the no-trust move.
