Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan has stated that Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa did not consider ‘corruption’ as bad and Bajwa was not ready to hold the corrupt ‘accountable’.
Imran Khan while talking to media person on his Haqiqi Azadi March made these allegations against the Army top commander.
The allegations are utterly and completely false.
COAS General Qamar Javed Bajwa is responsible for taking action in his own institution: something that he has done repeatedly and firmly.
Contrary to the baseless allegations against the COAS, the reality, General Bajwa during his tenure court-martialed and dismissed senior officers including serving Lt Gens.
It was illogical to blame COAS for not holding the politicians accountable for alleged corruption, as he is not mandated for that.
Asking him for such a role is ‘criminal violation’ of the constitution and Imran Khan should be held accountable for that.
Also PTI supremo needs to understand the difference between political opposition and corruption.
Imran Khan Allegations, Answers
Imran Khan has stated that General Qamar Javed Bajwa wanted Aleem Khan to be Punjab Chief Minister.
It is malicious twisting of facts.
Let’s breakout the Imran Khan allegations’ one by one;
Firstly, Imran Khan discussed two names with COAS as possible replacement of Usman Buzdar, one of them was Aleem Khan.
General Bajwa maintained that it has always been the political decision and COAS has nothing to do with it.
On repeated insistence of Imran Khan for COAS’s input, General Bajwa suggested that Aleem Khan seems to better option.
Imran Khan approved the name and Aleem Khan was told accordingly.
However, that night Imran Khan changed his decision due to ‘Bani Gala’ reasons and other reasons best known to Imran Khan only.
