Shahid Khaqan Did An Excellent LNG Deal, Imran Ruined It, Admits Bajwa

Former COAS Bajwa admits that Shahid Khaqan Abbasi signed the best LNG deal with Qatar to ensure the supplies for Pakistan during winters but it was ruined by PTI chairman Imran Khan, writes Javed Chaudhry.

It began with Imran’s former aide Nadeem Babar, who owned a company with the name of Orient Power, being appointed as special adviser on petroleum on April 22, 2019.

Establishment’s attempt to prevent PTI chief from making this decision went in vain, the columnist added.

He said that the establishment later inquired Babar about an irregularity in the import of oil at the Karachi Port, which he denied.

Later, the ISI caught a ship loaded with cheaply bought Iranian petrol. It was for none other than Babar.

Lastly, he asked for just three gas shipments from Qatar despite a one-time generous offer to take ‘as much as required’ amidst a looming gas crisis at home, so he could sell his own furnace oil.

Babar isn’t in the country anymore but Pakistan is still paying the price of his decisions to serve his own interests, all because Imran wanted to retain him as his aide.
