Bikram Singh Qamar Bajwa News
NEW DELHI: Former Indian Army chief, General Bikram Singh, has praised
Pakistan’s new army chief Lt. General Qamar Javed Bajwa as a ‘true professional’.
“In the UN operations, General Bajwa’s performance was totally professional and
outstanding. But a military officer’s conduct in the international environment is
different from the way he conducts himself back home. There, he is governed by
his country’s national interests,” General Singh was quoted as saying by the Times of India.
Moreover, General Bikram Singh was the 25th Chief of Army Staff of the Indian Army and
held the post until July 31, 2014. He was also the Chairman of the Chiefs of Staff Committee
of the Indian armed forces.
“General Bajwa has also commanded the important 10 Corps in Pakistan. So, he is acquainted
with his country’s policy towards India. I believe there will be no let-up as far as Pakistan
army’s Kashmir policy is concerned,” he further added.
“He has served in all these areas (bordering India) and knows pretty well what kind of
terrain and conditions exist on both sides,” the former Indian Army chief also said, according
to another story by NDTV.
Lt Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, a career infantry officer belonging to the Baloch Regiment,
has been chosen as Pakistan’s next Chief of Army Staff to replace General Raheel Sharif,
who retires on Nov 29.
