Islamabad: The floods in Pakistan have not disrupted normal life in many parts of the country, but have also forced the Army to take control of the administration, according to media reports.

The Pakistani army and its allies are set to form a national government without the permission of the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), headed by President Asif Ali Zardari, reports said.

Army Chief General Ashfaq Kayani is believed to be the only person to whom all the credit goes in handling the situation of floods and in providing relief to the flood victims.

Reports also claim that General Kayani has emerged as the sole responsible person who has the calibre to depose the sitting government.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan government has nullified any intimidation from the army.
“Pakistan government has not given up the relief work responsibility to any terrorist organization including Let,” Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said.

"Pakistani Army is doing constitutional duty under orders of the PM. It`s a disciplined force," Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told a news channel.
