Former ISI chief admits key role in formation of IJI
Lahore, Jan. 5 (ANI): Former ISI chief Hamid Gul has admitted that he played a vital role in the formation of political coalition, the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI), which was set up in 1988 to oppose the Pakistan Peoples Party in general elections.
The Daily Times quoted Gul, as saying that any accountability on the issue should be started from him.
Gul added that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was against any accountability, and that the Saifur Rehman Accountability Cell was one sided.
He said people had hoped that the then president Farooq Laghari would do justice through accountability, but he gave protection to journalists, generals and judges.
Gul said when he would be probed about the IJI formation, he would reveal the names of those politicians who requested the military leadership not to hold elections. (ANI)
