Imran Khan asks Modi to use his mandate to resolve Kashmir issue

Lahore: Pakistan opposition leader and Tahreek-i-Insaf Party chairman Imran Khan on Friday asked Prime Minster Narendra Modi to use his mandate to resolve Kashmir issue.

"Modi! I give you a free suggestion. The Indian people have given you mandate. You should show a big heart and act like a statesman on Kashmir issue," Khan said today while addressing a big public rally.

The cricketer-turned-politician further said: "There has been extreme poverty in the sub-continent. Instead of fighting a war and wasting money on weapons, Pakistan and India should do something to end poverty."

He said both the countries should take measures for lasting peace besides increasing the trade volume between them.

Castigating Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for not condemning "Indian aggression" on the LoC, Imran Khan said: "There has been not a word from Nawaz Sharif on Indian aggression at the LoC that resulted killing of many Pakistanis.

"I on behalf of Nawaz Sharif tell Modi that Pakistan is not afraid of its aggression. If you think Pakistanis will be intimidated by Indian firing at the LoC then your are seriously mistaken. Pakistan is united to face any aggression."
