On Thursday, SAPM Asim Bajwa had announced to quit in a TV interview. He said he will request the premier to release him from the responsibility as he wanted to focus on CPEC Authority projects.

Bajwa said with every passing day, Chinese interest in the CPEC was increasing and thus, it requires his special attention, as the mega project is the future of Pakistan’s economy.

The shocking statement of his resignation came hours after he rebutted the corruption allegations against him and his family in a four-page document. Taking to Twitter, Bajwa said that he has and will always serve Pakistan with dignity.

In response to a question, former DG ISPR said that as a Pakistani, he is accountable to provide money trail for his investment and that he has all the documents to support his claim.

  • My question is that why so many Pakistani Generals invest in America and leave Pakistan after retirement?. Why Pakistan is not a first priority? Almost all previous Army Chiefs have left Pakistan. Even many Top retired Officers are no longer Pakistani Citizens. Similarly most officers of PAF and Navy leave Pakistan after retirement. America and India dont allow their high profile Generals to leave America or India for another country. Why we are allowing High profile Generals to invest and migrate to America and abroad?.

    • This is a serious question one needs to ponder upon. These people were/are charged with protecting the state and its secrets and after retirement, they just leave the country with all the internal secrets. Who knows if they even sell this information, we all have a little devil inside and it never stays still.
