ISLAMABAD – Ousted Pakistani premier Imran Khan has congratulated the new top brass of the Pakistan Army, expressing hope that the new leadership will end the trust deficit between the state and the people.

PTI chief took to Twitter to wish new Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Asim Munir and General Sahir Shamshad Mirza, Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC).

Khan, borrowed a quote by Pakistan’s founder, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, which reminds the military the role it has in a democratic nation.

The defiant politician, who is facing several legal tussles after getting ousted in a no-confidence motion, said it’s time for the military leadership to end the trust deficit between the masses and the state which has developed during the last eight months.

Lately, other PTI leaders including secretary general Asad Umar also urged new army leadership to revive ‘broken trust between people and the military’.

PTI chief, 70, earlier held a secret meeting with former Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, who on Tuesday handed command to General Asim Munir.
