There is a strong buzz that the Lt. General (R) Shuja Ahmad Pasha is being tipped to become the new Governor Sindh. He is likely to replace current Governor Imran Ismail from the position.

General Pasha who served as the Director-General of the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) from 2008 to 2012 is being considered as the new Governor Sindh. Journalist Haroon Rasheed in an interview revealed that there are rumours that the government is considering General Pasha or Zulfiqar Mirza to replace Imran Ismail.

However, he also said that there is no such confirmation yet and these are just speculations for now. Even if the speculations come true, he also feels that General Pasha is not the right choice for this position as he doesn’t belong to Sindh.

Moreover, Zulfiqar Mirza’s controversial past also put him in a bad spot to attain this position.

Social media is buzzing with the rumor. If this happens, the new Sindh Governor can put PPP, dominating the political landscape of Sindh, in jeopardy.

General Asim Bajwa, the new Special Assistant for Information

Furthermore, recently, Prime Minister Imran Khan appointed former DG ISPR Asim Saleem Bajwa as the new Special Assistant for Information. He replaced Firdous Ashiq Awan from the position.

Bajwa had served as Commander Southern Command before his retirement. He remained Director-General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) from 2012 to 2016.  Earlier, the government also appointed him as chairman of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor Authority (CPECA).
