ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said that he had no doubt that the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX) attack was orchestrated in India.
“India orchestrated a big attack in a bid to destabilize Pakistan. No powerful country could stop such an attack like this,” PM Imran said while addressing the National Assembly in Islamabad.
He said police inspector Shahid and three security guards of the PSX laid their lives to protect lives of citizens and foiled the bid of the terrorists who wanted to take the PSX employees hostage.
“I pay glowing tribute to the martyr and intelligence agencies as well,” he said adding that it was a terrorist attack similar to the Mumbai attack.
The prime minister said our agencies were on high alert. We were completely ready for any untoward situation, he added. He said our agencies foiled four big attacks earlier as well.
On coronavirus situation, PM Imran Khan said that his government lifted the lockdown soon to make lives of poor easy. Private schools, restaurants, marriage lawns and other sectors were affected due to lockdown, he maintained. Those supporting lockdown would never have visited slum areas, he said.
He said reforms were inevitable for Pakistan now. Big reforms would be brought in the power sector, he said.
Imran Khan said those reaping benefit from corrupt system will always resist. Sugar mills were established to whiten the black money, he said. He said he was pressurized for not issuing report on sugar cartel and fake license holding pilots in the PIA.
“No power on earth can pull down our government, if we stood by our principles,” he said.
