      Congratulations to all the brigs to major gens.
      I am still hoping that the COAS will be promoted to GEN.
      I am also hoping that there will six LT GENERALS , because if not we are creating a new rank in the army inadvertently( maj general s1 and maj gen s2) with some of the most senior and well deserving officers stuck on the rank of major general for 5/6 years or more.
      Once again congrats to those who have been promoted it is well earned. Meritocracy must be the norm.
