India using Nawaz’s statement in Kulbushan case: Murad
ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Communication Murad Saeed on Friday regretted that a three-time prime minister Nawaz Sharif is coming out as a traitor in front of everyone, ARY News reported.
“His controversial interview was presented by India at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in Indian Spy Kulbhushan Jadhav case hearing,” He said while expressing his views on the floor of the National Assembly.
Criticising the posture of opposition parties in the House, he said Pakistan is currently facing many challenges from the Indian side following the Pulwama attack.
“India resorting to threatening tone against Pakistan, which demands message of unity from the floor of the house,” he maintained.
The minister while shunning the impression of Pakistan’s isolation, said Pakistan’s image was improving under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
Murad said Pakistan prisoners in Saudi Arabia are also returning to the country due to the efforts of the premier.
He said the increase in gas and electricity prices is also the result of the flawed policies of the previous governments which left behind a circular debt of 1200 billion rupees.
The controversial interview of deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif, given to national daily Dawn in May 2018, was craftily used by Indian judge at the ICJ during the case hearing of Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav.
India while presenting its arguments on Wednesday, cleverly employed the anti-state remarks, published in a Dawn interview, of three-time former premier as a proof against Pakistan.
