Former Indian army chief General Bikram Singh on Sunday heaped praise on Pakistan’s newly appointed army chief Lt Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa, calling him a true ‘professional’.

“In the UN operations, General Bajwa’s performance was totally professional and outstanding. But a military officer’s conduct in the international environment is different from the way he conducts himself back home. There, he is governed by his country’s national interests,” General Singh was quoted as saying by the Times of India.

General Bajwa served as a brigade commander in the UN peace-keeping operations in Congo in 2007 under General Bikram Singh.

Singh further said it is important to ‘wait-and-watch’ how General Bajwa conducts himself.

“General Bajwa is well-versed with the complexities, nature of operations and terrain along the LoC. He has also handled Kashmir extensively during his career,” another Indian army official was quoted as saying.
