Islamabad [Pakistan]: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)Chairman Imran Khan has said that Chief of Army Staff General General Qamar Bajwa is a supporter of democracy.

His statement came hours after the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General (DG) Asif Ghafoor tweeted about a meeting between Kaptaan and General Bajwa.

“The only thing I would like to say about the meeting is that the good news is that the army chief stands by democracy,” local Pakistan media quoted Khan as saying.

Khan’s remark comes after he had met General Bajwa.

Speaking at an event about PTI’s Billion Tree Tsunami project, Khan said that he is happy as the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Government has taken up an important task to deal with climate change.

The PTI chief assured people that one billion trees will be planted by the end of 2017.

He said the project will have a positive impact in the long run on the generations to come.

PTI’s Billion Tree Tsunami project aims to increase the province’s forested area by at least two percent. (ANI)
