Army wanted Article 245 invoked: ex-Air Vice Marshal
ISLAMABAD: Former Air Vice Marshal, Shahid Latif Tuesday said the army had demanded implementation of Article 245 before the launch of military offensive in North Waziristan Agency.

Speaking in Geo News programme ‘Capital Talk’ hosted by Hamid Mir, he said the army’s demand is being acted upon now.

He said he was aware of this demand all along which is being fulfilled now and being linked with the opposition’s march on Islamabad on August 14.

The former Air Vice Marshal said now it is up to the government to come up with the explanation on why it had to choose this time for meeting this demand.
