ISLAMABAD: Opposition leader Syed Khursheed Shah urged army to explain its position on Pervez Musharraf statement, contending that silence can be misconstrued as consent.

Speaking to reporters after Public Accounts Committee (PAC) meeting on Monday, Shah said that Pervez Musharraf tried to be smart while claiming to have armys support in treason case.

If army is not with Musharraf, it should rebuff his statement, he asserted. Shahbaz Sharif first used to lead rallies against load shedding and now he was ordering baton-charging on them, he noted. To a question, he said the Punjab government would never allow Tahir-ul-Qadris long march to set off and that it would remained confined in Lahore.

The government was begging for talks with Taliban but Taliban are not willing for talks as government is weak and no one talks to weak, he opined.
