Amid speculation of a military takeover in Pakistan, its powerful army chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani has bluntly told the civilian leadership to put its house in order through measures like a crackdown on corruption and improvement in its “faltering” response to the devastating floods.

Kayani “conveyed a plain message” to President Asif Ali Zardari and Premier Yousuf Raza Gilani in their recent meeting that the civilian leadership “must put its house in order,” a senior Pakistani security official was quoted as saying by The Washington Post.
