However, he asserted that not a single penny went into his pocket or the pocket of former President Ghulam Ishaq Khan and former Army Chief Mirza Aslam Beg.

Giving vent to his views at Talk Show ‘Tonight with Jasmeen’ after the Supreme Court delivered its verdict in long-awaited Asghar Khan case, Durrani said Ghulam Ishaq Khan and Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto were at variance with each over the issue of judges appointments, adding the army sent an envoy to both the President and the Prime Minister to prevent them from ungainly tug-of-war.

Asad Durrani noted the president decided to unseat Benazir following Pakka Qila Operation, adding, “I timely received the information regarding the president’s intention and I briefed Army Chief Aslam Beg over the issue and he went to the president to talk the issue over.”

Commenting on the money doled out among the politicians in 1990 elections, Durrani said when he assumed the responsibilities as DG ISI, Army Chief Beg gave him message that Karachi’s traders wanted to give donations to the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad; but, the formula on money distribution will come from the presidency.

Asad Durrani said he made the list of money recipients through notes and all record about this could be elicited from the office files, adding, ‘Not a single penny was embezzled.’

The decision regarding the distribution of money was made in pursuance of the order received in specific circumstances and deeming it correct in accordance with the conditions present then, he added.
