LAHORE - Tehreek-e-Istaqlal head, Air Marshal (r) Asghar Khan has expressed the fear of military intervention as the sitting government in his view, had miserably failed to perform during its one year of rule. Addressing general house of the Lahore High Court Bar Association before moving to The Mall for weekly protest rally here Thursday, Aghar Khan said the present situation in the country has become a serious concern, as performance of the rulers is almost nil. The need of hour is fresh election within three months under the auspices of a national government to be immediately formed, he said warning that the military intervention may become unavoidable if the same situation continues for some time further and that eventually would be even harmful for the country and the nation. The former air chief commenting on the statement of President Zardari that he knew the killers of Benazir Bhutto said, if that is the case why does not Zardari get the matter investigated and arrests the killers. What impedes arrest of the killers and why the rulers afraid of doing it, he posed a query. Khan on the occasion also admitted to have written to the Army while imprisoned and did not call it an offence. He said as Air Chief, he always kept his institution out of power on civil side and added, the army learns lessons from the past, and repels acceptance to the unconstitutional orders of the rulers. On the lawyers' movement, he said, it aimed at saving the country as such it must succeed. He supported lawyers demand for the restoration of the deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry and others however adding, the rulers did not appear doing that nor to quit the power. To a question, Khan said in view of what the rulers have done so far, no hopes of betterment could be pinned in them. Therefore the need is, lawyers continue their movement and make it a success as only they were able to save the nation from oppression of the rulers and their exploitation.
