Pakistan PM Imran Khan has warned that the security risk between India and Pakistan at the Line of Control (LoC) still persists and will continue until elections are held in India. India-Pakistan tensions escalated when over 40 Indian CRFP troopers were killed in a dastardly suicide attack in Pulwama in the Kashmir Valley.
PM Khan said that the Modi government wanted to win the election based on its politics of hatred against Pakistan. He said that the armed forces of the country are ever ready and would give a befitting response in case of any military aggression.
Khan added that good news regarding the oil and gas sector was expected in the next three weeks and if large reserves are discovered, the economic crisis in the country would be resolved to a great extent.
Speaking about the law and order situation in the country, PM Khan said that banned organisations should have been eliminated a long time ago, but it was his government which was taking action them. He said that the government was spending a tremendous amount of money to bring them into the mainstream.
Commenting on the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), he maintained that the anti-graft watchdog should catch big thieves as the small ones themselves would mend their way.
Khan said that due to lack of focused action, the bureaucracy was cautious and was avoiding signing off the projects for which the government was also facing hurdles. Speaking about Punjab chief minister, the prime minister said that Usman Buzdar had come from a middle-class background and needed some time.
PM Khan also stated that India was trying to push Pakistan in the blacklist of Financial Action Task Force (FATF) and if that happened, the country would be facing a lot of economic problems.
Khan said that the former government had pushed the country under huge debts. The main focus of his government after assuming charge was to keep Pakistan out from the list of defaulters.
