ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Chief of Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa was the best army chief of Pakistan and he had never seen a better army chief in his life than him.
Political analysts Irshad Bhatti said this while talking to Geo News anchor Shahzeb Khanzada during his program on Thursday. He said the PM told this to him during his meeting in Islamabad.
On speculations about replacement of the army chief, Bhatti said Imran Khan told that he had decided in the first three months after his coming into power that Qamar Javed Bajwa would continue as army chief.
“I have not seen such a balanced man and a democrat army chief. If I would declare any army chief as the best, then he would be Qamar Bajwa,” the analyst quoted PM Imran as saying.
The premier said Bajwa was his army chief and true soldier, who had helped the government on the foreign diplomatic and internal security fronts.
Irshad Bhatti said Imran admitted that being a prime minister he should not have used the language that he did in his recent speech against the opposition party leaders.
“Personal attacks were launched on me from the container, I was made a Jewish agent and they even tried to expel me from Islam,” PM Khan said.
He also dismissed if there were any threats to the government. He said his legal team was dealing with the foreign funding case.
Irshad Bhatti quoted the PM as saying that his focus was to making the country a hub of foreign investment, bring revolutionary changes in the agricultural sector and galvanizing the industrial sector of the country.
Imran said a couple of things made him distressed the most during his tenure which included the curfew in Kashmir and inflation in the country.
He said that the bureaucracy was not cooperating with Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar.
