ISLAMABAD WebDesk : Prime Minister Imran Khan Principal Secretary Muhammad Azam Khan has been appointed to the World Bank.

 What is matter ? What is the secret & who will benefit from it?

There was a lot of speculation in this regard that Azam Khan has left the side of Prime Minister.

One thing is hidden in midst of all this talk & that is that SBP must have some role to play in bringing Azam Khan to this post. In this regard senior journalist Mubashir Luqman says that There should be no objection to success but  question is why Pakistan has been mortgaged to the World Bank and IMF for the sake of an individual.

He said that it was sad that seniorofficers were trying to darken the future of Pakistan for the sake of their own future which was-not a good omen.

He also said that the SBP the country largest institution has been sacrificed for the sake of one individual & the nation will pay the price.

It may be recalled that a few days ago Secretary to the Prime Minister Muhammad Azam Khan was approved to be appointed as the Executive Director of the World Bank. According to the report Ministry of Economic Affairs had sent a summary to Prime Minister.

A government official who worked with Azam Khan said that hewas a dynamic intelligent & unconcerned man who knew his job well.

Azam Khan hails from the 17th Common Beach of the CSS &  has studied at-country leading higher education institutions such as Abbottabad and Quaid-e-Azam University Islamabad.

Describing the meeting with Azam Khan then IG of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police Ehsan Ghani said that he said to Azam Khan Show me the letter that you have to send to the Chief Minister. Lala I knew you would stop me so I came to your house after sending a letter to the Chief Ministers Secretariat.

Ehsan Ghani who worked with Azam Khan says that Azam is a dynamic intelligent and selfless man who knows his job well.

Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa didn't like Azam Khan resignation as Home Secretary so he was appointed as Secretary Tourism as a standing line appointment. In the world of bureaucracy term standing line is used to refer to appointments where there is neither authority nor resources.

This was a big challenge for Muhammad Azam Khan.
