Islamabad: The ongoing standoff over the head of intelligence agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in Pakistan is still continuing. The opposition's anger is slowly erupting over PM Imran Khan. Hitting out at Imran over the appointment of ISI chief, former Pakistan Senate President Mian Raza Rabbani said Imran should "stop playing Russian roulette" on the issue and make a decision.
Earlier, it was believed that the name of the new head of the ISI would be announced by this week, but it has not yet happened. Pakistan People's Party (PPP) veteran and Senator Mian Raza Rabbani issued a statement on Friday drawing the government's attention to the impact of delay and uncertainty on the issue, Pakistani newspaper Dawn reported.
Heena Rabbani further said, 'A state of uncertainty can lead to inactivity in ISI and worsen things. In military institutions, evaluation, quick and big decisions are the essence of command and success.' The senior PPP leader said it was not a question of civil rights as the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government had already lost the civil sector.
