PML-N government backed Jang/Geo declares “final show down with ISI”

By Sarmad Ali

Islamabad (Pak Destiny) Jang/Geo group has announced its final show down with Inter Services Intelligence (ISI). It says its workers will hold sit-in out sit the ISI offices against its involvement in getting Geo channels off air.
As the PML-N government is openly supporting the Jang/Geo group the political circles are interpreting that it will be a PML-N war against ISI. As Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri have been camping outside the parliament, the Jang/Geo group’s decision to hold sit-in outside the ISI offices in Islamabad appears a befitting response of the PML-N to the ISI. The PML-N has already alleged that ISI is behind Khan and Qadri dharnas.
“Now there will be an open war between PML-N/Jang/Geo and ISI after this announcement. The Defence ministry has already declared Geo/Jang anti-state and after this announcement it will have to see who wins at the end of the day… PML-N government backed Geo/Jang or ISI.”
