PM says COAS met businessmen ‘after his permission’


Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Chief of Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa had met the businessmen after his permission.

Speaking to senior journalists and analysts in Islamabad on Wednesday, the prime minister acknowledged that inflation and unemployment remain a big problem which his government is trying to resolve.

Earlier this month, a delegation of at least 20 businessmen, comprising heads of various private companies, called on army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa at the General Headquarters to inform the top general of the economic crisis being faced by the country.

“The meetings with the army chief was aimed at addressing the burning issues being faced by the business community in the country,” said a business leader, adding that uncertainty, lack of clarity in government policies, negative growth in large scale manufacturing were the key issues that were discussed on the occasion.
