ISLAMABAD: Bilawal Bhutto, Pakistan Peoples Party has said (PML-N) Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz led administration has failed to address the Kashmir dispute.
“I am not satisfied with the government’s policy on Kashmir as it has betrayed the moral and political support to Kashmir,” Bilawal said during an interview to a private television channel on Thursday.
Reacting to Nawaz’s visit to Kashmir to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Indian prime minister Narendra Modi, Bilawal said he (Nawaz) went to India to advance his personal ties, not to meet Hurriyat leaders.
He said the new generation of Indian-held Kashmir had stimulated their freedom struggle and the Modi-led government had showered pellets on them to suppress their legitimate cause and it took Nawaz three years to make a statement against brutality in Indian-held Kashmir.
He added that Pakistan’s perception is linked to terrorism wrongly, which is unfortunate and I tried to show Pakistan’s stand against terrorism during the interviews with Indian and German media.
When asked about the allegations of labeling the PPP a pro-establishment party, Bilawal said their opponents were giving lame excuses to hide their own failures.
On recent extrajudicial killings in Sindh, Bilawal said he was concerned about the encounters, which had taken place in the nation.
Referring to Najibullah’s killing case, Bilawal said as soon as this incident happened, I immediately took notice and did not wait for investigation report.
Pertinently, in a television interview on Saturday with India Today amid the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos Bilawal addressed a number of topics, ranging from the Pakistan-India troubled relationship, his political approach, his strategy for the country if the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) came into power again.
