ISLAMABAD: The government on Wednesday terminated the contract of Defence Secretary Lt General Naeem Khalid Lodhi (retd) with immediate effect for "gross misconduct and illegal action".

 

Lodhi had assumed the charge on Nov. 28, 2011.

 

A Prime Minister House statement issued here said the Defence Secretary was sacked "for creating misunderstanding between the state institutions".

 

Cabinet Secretary Nargis Sethi has been given additional charge of Ministry of Defence. (APP)

This is another opportunity provided by corrupt mafia to prove that they are dishonest. The sacked Defence Secretary must go to courts to seek justice. The corrupt mafia must not be allowed to take such stupid decision and be let off.

Gilani has no future. He has gone too far in damaging our reportation as a country. Defence Secretary will get his position back within 2 weeks. No worries.

PM seems to be doing everything to bring Martial Law in the country. It seems PM won't sit quietly unless his hidden desire of Martial not implemented.

IT IS TIME FOR MR.YRG TO RESIGNS. HE IS GONE CRAZY. GEN NAEEM LODHI IS KNOWN TO BE AN HONEST AND NATIONALISTIC PERSON. HE IS MOST UNLIKELY PERSON TO GO BEYOND LIMITS AND CAN NEVER GO AGAINST NATIONAL INTEREST.

Why is Gillani not sacking the president and his cabinet for corruption and irregularities? Shame on Yusuf Gillani and Zardari

Don't ever get saddened; the nation knows why they have relieved you; the drowning man catches at a straw, they say. They want to become political martyrs--a status that they will not get; they will die naturally, and that death is imminent.
