ISLAMABAD: Even as Prime Minister Imran Khan has been threatening India with nuclear war for revoking special status of Jammu and Kashmir, at home, he got severely criticised by his opponents at home over his Kashmir policy.

Prime Minister should focus on saving Pakistan Occupied Kashmir and Muzaffarabad and forget Srinagar, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, Chairman of opposition Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), said on Monday after meeting his father, Asif Ali Zardari and aunt Faryal Talpur in Rawalpindi’s Adiala Jail.

Bilawal’s dig at Khan came a day after US President Donald Trump made it clear that he had no intention to meddle in Jammu & Kashmir. Incidentally, none of G7 countries paid heed to Pakistan’s warning of nuclear conflagration with India.

“The government has totally failed on the Kashmir front, as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has annexed Kashmir, while the government was sleeping and busy in destroying economy of the country and forcing its political opponents against the wall,” Bilawal said.

“First, Pakistan’s policy on Kashmir was how to get Srinagar. Now due to the Imran Khan government’s inept behaviour and greed our foreign policy position is how to save Muzaffarabad (the capital of Pakistan-controlled Kashmir),” he said.

When a journalist asked him about the awards conferred on Prime Minister Narendra Modi by the Gulf States, Bilawal said it was due to the failure of Pakistan’s foreign policy.
