Pakistan’s former military ruler General (retired) Pervez Musharraf has said that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is not interested in making peace with Pakistan, adding that New Delhi is now run by a hardcore religious party.
“Indian Prime Minister (Narendra Modi) doesn’t want peace with Pakistan. In Pakistan people are religious but never elected a religious party on the contrary India has elected hardcore religious party,” Musharraf said at an interaction with journalist Bob Woodward at Yale University.
Commenting on concerns over the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), the former president said that if Islamabad is not worried about USA- India relations, then Washington should not be worried about growing Pakistan- China relations. “If economic value is coming to Pakistan why should we be concerned? As far as Pakistan is concern we need to look CPEC as per our point of view,” he added.
