RAWALPINDI: Gen Zubair Mahmood Hayat took the control of Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) on Monday from General Rashad Mehmood in an official function held at joint staff central command, Rawalpindi.
Gen Hayat, the seventeenth CJCSC of Pakistan, was offered a watch of respect at a service which was gone to by all head of staff, including active armed force boss Gen Raheel Sharif. Approaching armed force boss Gen Qamar Javad Bajwa was likewise demonstrated his nearness at the occasion.
Hypothetically, the CJCSC must be the senior-most four-star officer from any of the three administrations — armed force, naval force and flying corps.
The armed force has asserted some authority to its initiative, since the foundation of the NCA, on the grounds that it assumes responsibility of the key zones of atomic order and vital resources.
The CJCSC is likewise the representative director of NCA’s organization council, which is going by the executive.
Head of Army Staff assign General Qamar Javad Bajwa likewise went to the service. Officers from each of the three outfitted administrations were available on the event.
Gen Zubair Hayat is from the mounted guns and the serving Chief of General Staff (CGS). As a three-star general, he was beforehand posted as executive general of the Strategic Plans Division (SPD), which is the secretariat of the NCA; and corps leader Bahawalpur. This settles on him a perfect decision for the post of CJCSC, who has a practically selective ward over atomic powers and resources.
His postings as CGS and DG SPD managed him a chance to work intimately with PM Nawaz Sharif and Finance Minister Ishaq Dar.
Amid his residency as a noteworthy general, he was general officer telling (GOC) Sialkot and later headed the Staff Duties (SD) Directorate, whose work force are usually referred to in the armed force as ‘paper tigers’.
