F.P. Report

QUETTA: Minister for Interior Ahsan Iqbal Thursday said neighboring country India was using Afghanistan soil for hatching conspiracies against China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and spending million

of dollars for nefarious designs against Pakistan.

Talking to newsmen after inaugurating an Executive Passport Office in Quetta, the minister said Indian spy Kulbhushan Yadav had revealed these conspiracies against the Pakistan and confessed his involvement in various terrorist activities.

Ahsan Iqbal said that recent attack on Church in Quetta was also a result of infiltration from across Afghan border.

He asked the political parties to show unity and unison, rather than opting for politics of agitation to deal conspiracies against the country.

He said it was an era of economic competition and a country would get developed to the extent it is economically stronger. There was a need to empower the democratic system in order to strengthen the country’s economy, he added.

Ahsan said the political instability and leg-pulling strategies always lead towards a weak economy, adding the nation should demonstrate unity to deal the challenges, being faced by the country.

He said “We also invite PAT Chief Tahri ul Qadri to play his role in planning for country’s development and stability during All Parties Conference on December 30, rather than planning an agitation.”
