November 1, 2020

ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan on Sunday said that the opposition tried to blackmail on the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) matter.

The prime minister said while addressing the Azadi Parade ceremony in connection with the 73rd Independence Day of Gilgit-Baltistan in Gilgit. Strongly criticizing the opposition parties, he said that the opposition parties tried to blackmail the federal government over the FATF matter.

"As soon as he became the Prime Minister, I had announced that I would not leave the people who looted Pakistan. Today, these thieves and robbers have come together and are talking against the state institutions of the country. If these thieves and robbers are speaking against the army chief and the head of ISI, it meant that my choice was right, Imran Khan mentioned.

PM Khan said that Mir Jafar and Mir Sdiq gave the most harm to the Muslims, they were the traitors who harmed the Muslims from inside from the own people. "Today we are seeing Mir Jafar, Mir Sdiq and Mir Ayaz Sadiq of Pakistan. We received congratulatory messages from all over the world on the issue of Indian pilot Abhinandan but now Ayaz Sadiq is saying that Pakistan release the Indian pilot due to the fear of India," he added.

The premier further said that all this is happening because Imran Khan is not giving them NRO but I want to tell the whole nation that Imran Khan will never forgive him. He said Modi government in India is the most extremist government and they are pursing the Hindutva ideology, perpetrating brutalities on innocent Kashmiri people.

He said rule of law is vital for progress and prosperity of Pakistan and those who want to discredit Pakistan Army and judiciary they are speaking the language of Modi. He said the government is focusing on development of all backward areas of the country.

Provisional provincial status to Gilgit-Baltistan

PM Khan said that the government has decided to give provisional provincial status to Gilgit-Baltistan keeping in view the UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions. He paid tribute to Gilgit Scouts and martyrs who sacrifices their lives for the liberation of this region.

Announcing the interim provincial status of Gilgit-Baltistan, Prime Minister Imran Khan said that the scouts and martyrs of Gilgit-Baltistan liberated the region by making sacrifices. "Can't announce development plans here because of the election, but the government's only goal is to bring up the areas that are left behind."

Strong army indispensable for country

Imran Khan also lauded the role of Pakistan's security forces for successfully combating the war against terrorism and foiling attempts by the enemies to destabilize the country.

"India wanted to spread Shia-Sunni anarchy in the country but the Pakistani intelligence agencies thwarted these intentions of India. Pakistan is safe because of the sacrifices of the armed forces," he said.

Imran Khan said terrorism is being carried out in our country under a plan and our valiant security forces are standing against it and rendering their lives for the defence of motherland. He said a strong army is indispensable for a country to protect its sovereignty and solidarity.
