He expressed his displeasure at a news conference held in Quetta on June 2 by the Inspector General of the Frontier Corps, Maj Gen Obaidullah Khan Khattak, and said it was not the business of an uniformed official to hold press conferences. He further said the news conference violated the court's orders.
The Chief Justice said the court wanted to know what the role of the constitutional government was and that the time had come to summon "someone with authority". Chaudhry cautioned that the apex court would call army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani and ask him how the country should be run and what the latter could do. During the news conference, Maj Gen Khattak had claimed that Baloch nationalists were running training camps and backing a campaign to defame state institutions. Khattak blamed "foreign agencies" for the unrest in Balochistan. However, the Chief Justice said that the situation in Balochistan was alarming and unstable.
