Pak Army Chief, ISI complicit in Pathankot attack: Congress

New Delhi: Asserting that Pakistan Army Chief General Raheel Shaif and the ISI are deeply complicit in the Pathankot terror attack, the Congress Party on Wednesday said there was no point in holding a dialogue with Islamabad as Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif accounts for nothing in his country.

Congress leader Manish Tewari said the real ruler of Pakistan is General Sharif.

“Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif accounts for nothing in Pakistan, his writ doesn’t run beyond Raiwind,” said Tewari.

“He (General Raheel Sharif) and his ISI are deeply complicit in the attack in Pathankot, the attack earlier in Gurdaspur and the terror which is being perpetrated in India since 1980,” he added.

Tewari while talking to ANI pointed out that the government had ‘single agenda of terror’ to be discussedwith Pakistan.

“Foreign Secretary-level talks should be immediately abrogated. What do you want to talk to Pakistan about? You don’t want trade and transit treaty with Pakistan,” Tewari said.

“You want only one thing that the terror should stop. If terror doesn’t stop what you are going to talk to Pakistan about oranges?” he added.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday received a phone call from his Pakistani counterpart, who assured him all support in Pathankot attack probe.

National Investigation Agency (NIA) is questioning Gurdaspur SP Salwinder Singh, his friend Rajesh Verma and the cook in connection with the Pathankot terror attack case.

NIA has registered three cases in the probe and a 20 member team is stationed in Pathankot.

NIA DG Sharad Kumar is also visiting Pathankot today to monitor the probe.(ANI)
