Sheikh Rashid says there will be no stability in politics until COAS appointment issue resolved


Awami Muslim League President Sheikh Rashid has said there will be no stability in politics until the issue of the new army chief’s appointment is resolved.

On Twitter, the former interior minister said his successor Rana Sanaullah’s statement that an army chief would be appointed even if a summary for it was not moved had rung “alarm bells”.

“It is clear from the interior minister’s statement that everything is not well,” said Rashid while making an apparent reference to the leaked tax records of incumbent army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa and his family into which Finance Minister Ishaq Dar as ordered an inquiry.

“They themselves get the records of the assets leaked and that order an inquiry into it,” Rashid said.
