Islamabad, Oct 19 (PTI) Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday pledged to establish an exemplary rule of law in the country where even a general would get promotion on the basis of performance, in an apparent reference to the ongoing tiff between the government and the army over the appointment of the new chief of the spy agency ISI.

"The system of the state of Madina (under the Prophet) was based on justice and merit, and even a general was promoted to the higher rank on the basis of performance,” he said.

Addressing a conference on the occasion of Eid Milad-un-Nabi, which was observed to celebrate the birth of Prophet Mohammed, Khan vowed to turn the country into “Madina-like welfare state” to ensure merit and supremacy of law in the society.
