ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan has said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi appears to have risen to the level of incompetence from his “belligerent and provocative” statements.
Reacting to Modi’s Dhaka speech about Indian involvement in 1971 events, Khan said that any statesman in his shoes would have focused on how to fight poverty in the subcontinent by resolving issues and creating peace.
“Yet by playing to his right wing gallery of fanatics, Modi is ensuring that money gets diverted towards an arms race in the region,” he tweeted. “From his belligerent & provocative statements it appears that Modi has risen to the level of his incompetence,” tweeted Imran.
He further said that Modi government has tried its every bit to influence and to put pressure on Pakistan to limit the agreements signed with China. He also said that whole Pakistan nation is with Pakistan army and is supporting the cause of defense and integrity of Pakistan.
Meanwhile talking to media after attending a hearing of the judicial commission probing alleged electoral irregulatiries and rigging in the 2013 general elections, Imran Khan said that more than half of the Forms XV (Ballot paper account) went missing after the 2013 general elections.
The judicial commission should investigate and trace the missing forms, he said.
Criticising the government, he said that PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had become prime minister for a third term, yet his priorities were his personal businesses.
He said that it was not a problem of whether magnetic ink was used or not, since NADRA did not have the necessary equipment to read magnetic ink in the first place.
Khan said his party had placed all facts and evidendce before the commission and it was now up to the commission’s judges to investigate and ascertain the truth.
“We have put everything before the commission. We have brought these facts forward. It is now up to the commission to investigate,” he said. DNA
