Guess we are stepping back in time to when research on leadership and management sciences proved that self-imposed bureaucratic traditions were the main reasons for failed organization success. It looks as if someone somewhere thinks that PM is not the only person who needs to be consulted or told about the smoke before the fire erupts.

PM is just a dummy postmaster. They should rather jump the gun and approach COAS for all their issues. As they say there is a new doctrine in town now replacing the inglorious bajwa doctrine.
