What are your thoughts on Asim Bajwa’s decision? Let us know in the comments section.


  • He should resign from Chairman CPEC as well. He is telling Pakistan and China to invest in Pakistan whereas his whole family and investments are in America. These are double standards and nothing else.

    • Read his whole statement. Investments withdraw from all foreign companies. and every pakistani have rights to invest in any country and any legal business.

      • Everyone is surprise to know about his or his wife wealth. This company can be a bridge to remit money outside the Pakistan. Why only civilian get pissed off with strict inquiries under FIA or NAB. He is no more Army office hence accountable to the public.
