The address of Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa at a seminar in Quetta is quite important and significant more than one way while as a matter of fact speaking his heart out before the gathering.

In his address the Army Chief has said many things and make many things clear to the people in general and the politicians in particular who are often heard talking about third force interruption and what not.

According to the reports in the media, the Army Chief has reiterated in very unequivocal terms that he is a pro-democracy and quite realizes and knows the significance of vote power, it is not for the army to run the government and it is indeed very high time for everyone to correct their mistakes and work within their own sphere quite obviously without no interferences in others domains whatsoever as mistakes have been made by the generals as well as the politicians.

General Qamar Javed Bajwa also further said quite emphatically the army is a national institution meant to serve the nation and it (army) shall continue performing its role while national security and development remains a national obligation above everything else for all state institutions.

Quite obviously and rightfully, Almighty Allah has blessed Pakistan with plenty of resources , we have only to explore and exploit these resources for the best of the advantage of the nation and the country.
