Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif begins farewell visits from Lahore

Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Raheel Sharif on Monday has started his round of farewell visits, Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The army chief who is set to retire this month kicked off his farewell visits and addresses from Lahore. He is expected to visit Karachi and Peshawar soon. He addressed a gathering of Army and Rangers personnel at Lahore Garrison.

“Accomplishing peace and stability has been no ordinary task. Our sacrifices and joint national resolve helped us offsetting all odds against the country,” General Raheel said during his address.

“Speculations about the extension in service of COAS are baseless,” the ISPR Director General Lt-General Asim Saleem Bajwa said in a Twitter message.

Earlier, the Islamabad High Court dismissed in October a petition seeking to elevate General Raheel Sharif to the rank of field marshal.
