LAHORE: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal on Thursday has expressed concerns over rising number of cross border attacks from Afghanistan and India, ARY News reported.
Speaking to press after delivering a lecture at a varsity here, the interior minister said that India was fanning terrorism in Balochistan through Afghanistan.
The sole purpose of these attacks is to sabotage the ongoing China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project. “It is a sponsored terrorism being funded by the neighbouring country,” he added.
The federal minister said that the investigation of Turbat killings was underway.
In response to a question, the interior minister remarked that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan is calling for snap elections as he fearing that his party’s nominated candidates would not be elected in the upcoming senate elections, due in March next year.
He reiterated that the government will complete its five-year term, as what he claimed, the masses have confidence in the PML-N government.
Pakistan has moved beyond from the baggage of 1999 and 2002, he underlined.
Taking a jibe at Imran Khan, the interior minister said that the nation would not hand over the decision making responsibilities to a person having no understanding of handling affairs even at a union council level.
