We as a nation have failed you,you have not failed. Only if Pakistan was tolerant n patient enough you would have toppled the table and game would have changed. You have risen to the real beauty of stature sir @Asad_Umar. Thankyou for all your services n efforts.#WeLoveAsadUmer pic.twitter.com/onLynbMATu

Asad Umar sitting at press conf ALONE was so symbolic of his state in PTI.
No group; no vested interest; no biradri; no mafia; no lackies; no Team XYZ.
Just pure unadulterated elegance, sincerity, hard work, passion and unconditional love from Insafians#WeStandWithKhan pic.twitter.com/M2tMcdl9ZX

Ijaz Shah is ex-Army, ex-IB , ex-ISI. 1971 war veteran. (IB=Intelligence Bureau, ISI=Inter-Services Intelligence)
A spy and Army man known for being most anti Human rights and anti constitution person among all pawns.
