As former cricketer Imran Khan’s political party – Pakistan Tehreek i Insaf (PTI) has come as single largest winning party in the 2018 general elections in the country and will be forming the government, Khan said that Kashmir remains “our biggest contention.”
Khan said, “Kashmir remains our biggest contention. Kashmiris are suffering for long. We have to solve Kashmir issue by sitting across the table. If India’s leadership is willing then the both of us can solve this issue through dialogue. It will be good for the subcontinent also.”
He also added that the leadership of Pakistan and India now need to come to the table to resolve this and end the blame games. “We are stuck at square one. If India comes and takes one step towards us, we will take two steps toward them. Right now it is one sides where India is constantly just blaming us,” said Khan.
There have been apprehensions on what will the India policy of new Pakistan government under the Prime Ministership of Khan, who has been in politics for 22 years but has come in power first time.
Khan also took a dig at the media in India, saying that he was disappointed with how Indian media portrayed him ahead of the election. “As a villain,” he said.
“I am that Pakistani who has travelled through India because of my cricket. I am that Pakistani who believes that to improve economics in the sub continent trade between India and Pakistan is important. This will be beneficial for both the countries.”
