Modi, Imran have same agenda against country: Kirmani


ISLAMABAD, Oct 21 (APP): Special Assistant to Prime Minister for Political Affairs Dr Asif Kirmani Friday said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was attacking on Line of Control while PTI chief Imran Khan was planning to attack Islamabad.

Speaking in PTV programme, he said both the Indian Prime Minister and Imran Khan had had same agenda and wanted to stop development process in the country and on China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project (CPEC) by creating chaos and unrest.

He said Imran Khan did not have any national agenda and he was just doing negative politics due to some personal grudges with the Prime Minister, he added.

He said in a democratic society, it was right of every one
to protest but no one could be allowed to hatch conspiracy against the country on the pretext of holding protest.

Dr Kirmani said the PTI, which was in power in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, had failed to serve the masses there.

In fact Imran Khan’s politics was exposed as he could not deliver, he added.

He said PTI had been badly defeated in elections held in GB AJK, cantonments and by-elections.

Its politics of agitation was rejected by the people, he added.
He said that despite the fact that name of the Prime Minister was not mentioned in Panama Papers, he presented himself and his family for investigation.

He said the government was ready for accountability but it wanted that all others whose names were mentioned in the Panama Papers should also be held accountable as nobody was above the law.

Imran Khan had admitted that he owned an offshore company and his companions also owned companies and got waived off loans, and they should also present themselves for accountability, he added.

He said the government wanted to resolve the matter of Terms of Reference (ToR) for Panama Papers and demonstrated flexibility but the opposition parties insisted for person-specific ToR.

He said agenda of the PML-N government was development and progress while PTI wanted chaos and destruction in the country.
