Nawaz has no business links with any Indian citizen: PM Spokesperson

Islamabad: Musadik Malik, spokesperson to Pakistan Prime Minister has said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, “has no business partnership with any Indian citizen”, reported Radio Pakistan on Friday.

“Despite repeated rebuttals, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan is hell bent to prove Indian businessman Jindal as business partner of the Prime Minister,” Malik said in a statement.

The spokesperson also said that an argument can be responded with argument, but there is no use of striking head with utter ignorance.

Khan had earlier said that there was a “conflict of interest” for a business associate to arrange a meeting between Prime Minister Sharif and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi.

“We welcome the thaw in Pak-India relations, but to have a business associate arrange the two prime ministers’ meetings has an underlying conflict of interest,” he tweeted.

Referring to an earlier secret meeting between the two leaders, he said, “Meetings of the two prime ministers, from the secret meeting in Kathmandu to the one in Lahore, must be done through institutional frameworks with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in the loop for sustainability.”

Khan further in a tweet said that such meetings held between the prime ministers undermines a process whereby tensions can be eased, and raises questions and conflict of interest. (ANI)
