‘COAS met all guests at Kartarpur’: ISPR slams Indian media’s ‘myopic’ coverage

RAWALPINDI: Chief of Army Staff (COAS) Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa met all guests at the groundbreaking ceremony of Kartarpur corridor, the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said while hitting out at what it said Indian media’s myopic view of the event.

“Indian media taking a myopic view is selectively showing Mr. Gopal Chawla meeting COAS. Army Chief met all guests at the venue irrespective of identity. A peace initiative should not be subjected to propaganda,” the military’s media wing said.

In another tweet, the ISPR said COAS attended the Kartarpura Corridor ceremony and quoted him as saying: “It’s a step towards peace which our region needs. Barbed wire at borders is measure by a sovereign state to check / deny illegal crossings. Corridors & Gates are for legal peaceful visitors. So is the case for all our neighbors.”

Prime Minister Imran Khan performed the groundbreaking of the much-awaited Kartarpur corridor that will connect Gurdwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur to Dera Baba Nanak in India’s Gurdaspur district.
