Minister for Information and Broadcasting Chaudhry Fawad Hussain on Saturday, 2nd March said that today after 70 years of independence India was divided while Pakistan was united, local press reported. “Establishment of peace in the region is the topmost priority of the government,” the minister said while addressing the convocation of a private university in Lahore.
Pakistan was proud of its talented youth which constituted 65 percent of its population, he said addressing the youth in attendance.
Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said that parlays were the only solution to ‘resolve the conflicts between the two countries while the Indian government wanted to create a hostile situation in India before elections’. Indian political spectra have been observed to use Pakistan-bashing as an election slogan before but the 2019 war-hysteria stands as a distinctive example.

The resolution has been forwarded to the speaker National Assembly for consideration.”
