The new appointments come shortly after the appointment of General Qamar Javed Bajwa as army chief. As with every change in the strong leadership of the army in the country, and the question that arises is being asked is how and whether the new president in the appointment and has a radically different looking team will translate into changes in policy in various fields.
The newspaper reported earlier that all discussions with informed sources indicate any change or, in fact, to tighten internal security operations, which started in the country during the period of General Kayani and implemented with gusto under his successor.
The appointment of officers and has a proven track record in the field of internal security and counter-terrorism as the Graduate School and ISI DG respectively also enhances this impression. That the position of the prestigious Graduate School had gone to one of the most junior lieutenant generals, suggesting that the President will take a keen interest in these operations and provide anticipatory guidance and supervision.
It is too early to say whether any change policies on India will be achieved apart from perhaps an hour more on individual trips by gunmen, but no army commander can be lax.
The coming weeks to make it clear whether it now has more of a say in these areas.
