Resolution of issues between Pakistan, India to usher progress: Qamar


Federal Minister for Defence Syed Naveed Qamar on Sunday said economic progress could be ensured in the region if the issues pending between Pakistan and India were addressed.
“Friendly relations with all neighbours are one of the planks of the government’s policy,” the minister said while talking to reporters in Asgharabad area of Tando Muhammad Khan.
To a question the minister said the federal cabinet’s ministerial committee comprising Makhdoom Amin Fahim, Syed Khursheed Shah, Mola Bux Chandio and himself met all the stakeholders in Sindh to pursue peace in the province.
“The concerned departments are investigating the attack on Mohabbat-e- Sindh (Love Sindh) rally in Karachi on May 22,” he said, adding that there was a need to end the perception of any divide between the urban and rural Sindh.
Talking about the rehabilitation of the irrigation infrastructure in Tando Muhammad Khan, the minister said work would be completed before the monsoon set in this year.
He emphasized on the need for going ahead with the Zulfikarabad project that the province’s growing population required.
“It is also very important from the investment point of view as well as to address the necessity of establishing planned cities,” he added.
He dispelled the perceptions that the project would reduce the natives into a minority and would deprive Sindh of its coastal belt.
Instead, he said, the project would usher prosperity in the area, create thousands of jobs for the people and contribute to overall economic progress of the province, while giving a new port to Sindh.
Qamar said political groups who were opposed to the project needed to know that their concerns were unsubstantiated.


    • @Mushtaque Khan:
      Come out of mother's lap (Godi) and look around outside. You could be able to see what is happening in FATA, SWAT, Waziristan, Karachi, Gilgit-Baltistan and above all Balochistan where innocent civilians are being killed daily by your (peace loving) Army, thousands picked up civilians are not trace-able. Don't believe others, try to read Pakistani Newspapers on regular basis.
