. While revealing this a month ago I was convinced and am still convinced Imran Khan-Bajwa team has tremendous potential to pull Pakistan
out of financial strategic quaqmire– Kamran Khan( @AajKamranKhan )August 19, 2019 However, dissension originated from a couple of political analysts who think extending COAS’s tenure is identical to feeding discouragement in the armed
forces. They slammed PM Khan for taking a decision against the laws and going back on his words for not giving an extension to any COAS. The extension offered by a selected Prime Minister Imran Khan to the Army Chief is truly condemnable and it will be bad for #Pakistan’future. PM Imran had appropriately
said in the past that extension provided to an army chief completely damages organization of army and its discipline.– Ahmad Noorani(@Ahmad_Noorani)August 19, 2019 I think Bajwa’s unflinching assistance to the blundering govt has actually paid off.
