Kayani's term as Pak army chief should not be extended: Imran Khan

Islamabad, Sept. 13 (ANI): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has said General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani's term as Chief of Army Staff should not be extended any further.

During an interview on 'Kal Tak', Khan appreciated Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for calling the All Parties Conference (APC) to devise counter-terrorism strategies.

According to the Express Tribune, he, however, added that in order to curtail crime, national institutions needed to be strengthened, and therefore General Kayani's tenure should not be extended.

Asserting that the tenure of former president Pervez Musharraf had also weakened institutions, he said that he wanted cases against former president Asif Ali Zardari to re-open, the report added. (ANI)
