Participants in an extensive briefing on the media during a Q&A session with the wide-ranging briefing, DG ISPR said there was no backdoor contact with the opposition, as the media speculates. “Never”, “No,” he said.

He also said, “The government at the time asked the military to hold an election, and the military was honest and did its best to follow the order,” “making it clear that there was no rigging in the 2018 election.”
“Even if they (opposition parties) have doubts about the result of the election, they can access the respective agency, It is not right to raise the level of accusations”.
Asked what the army thought of Maulana Fazl ur Rahman of the Pakistan Democratic Movement who said he would march to Rawalpindi, Maj Gen Babar Iftikhar said he did not see any reason why PMM should move to Rawalpindi.
“we will take care of them If they all want to come. We will serve them tea [chai]. What else I can say,” he quipped as the mediators present began to smile.
