LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar said on Wednesday that courageous policy statement by Prime Minister Imran Khan after Indian propaganda in wake of Pulwama attack truly depicts the emotions of the nation.

“In fact, Prime Minister Imran Khan has presented the principled stance of Pakistan in a logical way,” the CM said in a a statement.

He said Indian allegations against Pakistan were baseless and Indian government was unsuccessfully trying to put the burden of its political failures on Pakistan, he said.

India is gravely involved in serious violations of human rights in occupied Kashmir and its hue and cry is an attempt to hoodwink others as well as to spoil facts. Levelling allegations without proof or investigations is the height of shamefulness, he added.

“Pakistan’s desire for peace should not be construed as its weakness. The nation is united and the armed forces of Pakistan are ever ready to defend the beloved motherland,” the CM concluded. Separately, Punjab CM condoled the death of former KP governor Ameer Gulistan Janjua. In a condolence message, the CM extended sympathies to the bereaved family and prayed that may Almighty Allah rest the departed soul in eternal peace.
