According to a statement released by ONSC, certain individuals have started rumors in the internet since Friday and statements are being circulated regarding the organizational structure of the National Security Council under the title of ‘ARG Palace’s threats to Mohammad Hanif Atmar’.

Atmar announced his resignation nearly a month, describing the existing political issues as the main motive behind his decision to step down.
