General Kayani Gets Extension of 3 Years By Prime Minister

Pakistan's Army Chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani has got Extension of three years in his Service by Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousaf Raza Geelani. General Kayani was retiring on 29th November 2010 but Government decided to give him Extension of 3 Years because Pakistan is fighting a war in its own territory at the moment so changing the Army Chief at this time will not be a good decision.

After  Pervez Musharraf General Kayani handled the things very well and played major role in improving the image of Army in the Public. Under him the Swat and South Waziristan operations where also done successfully. Now He will remain Pakistan's army Chief until 29th November 2013. This is for the first time that a Civilian Government has given Extension to a Army Chief.
