Extending Gen Bajwa’s tenure was a ‘ big mistake,’ admits Imran Khan

LAHORE: Former premier and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan said that the decision to extend former army chief retired General Qamar Javed Bajwa’s tenure was a “mistake.”

In an interview with a private channel, the PTI chief said that his ouster exposed many people, adding that he knows the Sharif family for 40 years, and their only motive is to loot the nation and get NRO.

Imran Khan added that when these two families [Sharif and Zardari] came to power, Pakistan started to crumble, adding that PML-N’s Miftah Ismail and current Financial Czar Ishaq Dar were squabbling with each other on the state of the economy as the country headed towards a default.

“It was a mistake to give an extension to former army chief General (retired) Bajwa, and extensions should not be given in the military, but the situation was otherwise and he had no option,” he added.
