    Appointment of Qamar Javed Bajwa as new chief of Pakistan’s army seems to have set alarm bells ringing in India as country’s former army chief Bikram Singh on Saturday said New Delhi should be careful with respect to general’s approach.

    Gen (retd) Singh regards Gen Bajwa as thorough professional who gave an outstanding performance in Congo during a UN peace mission, where they worked together.

    “Things change once an officer goes back to his home country,” Indian media reported Bikram Sindgh as saying.

    He said the new Pakistan army chief has wide experience of affairs related to the Line Of Control (LoC), adding that Qamar Javed Bajwa has served in all areas (bordering India) and knows pretty well what kind of terrain and conditions exists on both sides.

    Earlier in the day, Pakistan appointed Lt Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa as Chief of the Army Staff (COAS) and Lt Gen Zubair Mahmood Hayat as Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC)

    General Bajwa will get baton of command from General Raheel Sharif who retires on Nov 29 after completing three years in office.

    He is hinting towards Musharraf's experience on LOC and Siachen and Kargil war.

    Bajwa has ten times the experience of Musharraf of commanding formations on LOC.

    NEW DELHI: Former Army Chief Bikram Singh, under whom the new Pakistan Army Chief Lt Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa has served on a UN assignment, tonight said India should be "careful" and watchful with regard to his approach.

    Gen (retd) Singh described Lt Gen Bajwa as a "thorough professional" who gave an "outstanding performance" under him in Congo but said things change once an officer goes back to his home country.

    "There might be great bonhomie when the goal is world peace under UN mandate but things change once you go back to your country. This is because your national interest comes first," Gen Singh told PTI.

    He said India should wait and watch and be "careful".
    The new Pakistan Army chief has wide experience of LoC affairs due to his extensive involvement with Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas.

    "He has served in all these areas (bordering India) and knows pretty well what kind of terrain and conditions exist on both sides.

    It seem India is already feeling not good. So let see what new Boss does. His first two months would be crucial and will set the tone. Also what kind of person he promotes when 4 Lt Generals who were senior to him retire. I hope the two he promotes are Billal Akbar of Sindh Rangers and Sher Afghan head of Baluchistan FC.

    Serving under a senior officer on a peacekeeping mission on behalf of UN DOES NOT equate to one beimg better than the other, nor dpes it equate to knowing him inside out. And you are actually doing exactly the opposite of what ypur fprmer CAS advised. Instead of being cautious you write him off with stupod statements like singh was his boss and he was knows him insode out as if that service gives you significant insight. It doesn't...
