Prime Minister Imran Khan said Wednesday the brutal Narendra Modi, his Indian counterpart, was preparing to inflict cruelty on all Kashmiris. The ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has decided to give a severe response to Modi over India’s invasion and control of occupied Kashmir, as well as its atrocities on the Kashmiri folks, on an international level.
According to a notification issued by the PTI, there would be a protest when the Indian prime minister travels to the United States and, in this regard, PM Imran has issued directives to his party’s international chapters. PM Imran further said the PTI’s New York chapter should move to bring together the community against India’s aggression in occupied Kashmir and human rights organisations.
India had no right to illegally occupy Kashmir, especially considering the United Nations Security Council’s (UNSC) resolutions and bilateral agreements, PM Imran added, noting that as the ambassador for the occupied Muslim-majority, Himalayan region, he would raise the people’s voice on every forum around the world.
Moreover, Prime Minister Khan took to Twitter to term a 73 per cent reduction in the current account deficit in the first month of this fiscal year a great achievement. The prime minister said: The govt’s consistent focus on reducing our external imbalances by reducing imports & increasing exports & remittances are bearing fruit. Current account deficit reduced by more than $6 bn last yr & July this yr deficit is 73% or $1.5 bn lower than July 2018 a great achievement.
A day earlier, on Aug 20, the State Bank of Pakistan had said the current account deficit (CAD) shrank by a massive 73 per cent in the first month of this fiscal year. The trade loss shrank by 72.81pc to $579 million in July as compared to $2.13 billion in same period of last fiscal year.
Prime Minister Imran Khan says ensuring access of people to simple and inexpensive justice is top priority of the government. He was talking to Law Minister Barrister Farogh Naseem who called on him in Islamabad on Wednesday. The Prime minister appreciated the efforts of Law Minister on public interest legislation. The Law Minister informed the Prime Minister about progress on new laws and their implementation.
