New Delhi, It comes as surprising news that Pakistan PM Imran Khan wants PM Narendra Modi to win elections once again. What possibly may be the real reason behind this? How did foes turn friends? Till a few days back Imran Khan went around the town saying that PM Modi had initiated the Balakot Strike with an eye on the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan said he thinks there may be a better chance of peace talks with India if Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Bharatiya Janata Party wins the general election due to begin on Thursday.
Khan said that if the next Indian government were led by the opposition Congress party, it might be too scared to seek a settlement with Pakistan, fearing a backlash from the right.
“Perhaps if the BJP – a right-wing party – wins, some kind of settlement in Kashmir could be reached,” Khan told a small group of foreign journalists in an interview.
Khan did appear to offer India an olive branch, saying that Islamabad was determined to dismantle all Pakistan-based militias in the country and that the government had full support from Pakistan’s powerful army for the programme. Those to be dismantled include groups involved in an attack in Jammu and Kashmir.
