LAHORE - Former Army chief Gen (Retd) Mirza Aslam Beg doesn’t think that Dr Tahirul Qadri will be able to bring about a revolution, as being claimed by him.

In a TV programme on Sunday, he said that unless some major party joined hands with Dr Qadri, it would not be possible for the PAT chief to translate his words into reality.

Answering a question, he said that the Election Commission of Pakistan should look into the rigging allegations levelled by PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

In case the allegations proved true, the government would be left with no option but to go for fresh polls.

He said in Pakistan’s context a peaceful change would mean revolution.

Beg said the government would be justified in refusing access to protesting parties to the D-Chowk, Islamabad, for security reasons.

The intending parties should be asked to choose some other venue, he said.

Meanwhile, the PAT chief addressed a women’s conference here on Sunday.

He said the days of the present rulers were numbered.

He reiterated his call for Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif to step down because of the Model own tragedy. 

In case he had not ordered firing on the protestors, the PAT chief said, the Chief Minister should still resign for his failure to know about the tragic incident.
