ISPR Director General Major General Asim Salim Bajwa on Thursday said the Pakistan Army wants free, fair and timely general elections in the country.
He said delay in holding of general elections would not benefit the army. He said that the Pakistan Army has supported the democracy during the last five years and that it would continue to do so in the future as well.
Talking about recent terrorist activities in the country and especially in Quetta, he said that ISI works in provinces including Balochistan within its constitutional parameters.
Answering a query about the law and order situation in Balochistan province, Bajwa said the decision of whether or not to call the army was up to the government.
Bajwa said that 19 new check posts were created in Quetta, which are manned by FC and that there are a total of 35 check posts in the city.
Replying to a question, DG ISPR said the army had waged war against terrorist organisations. He said everyone was currently in a state of war, and urged all institutions to unite in the fight against terrorism.
