LAHORE - PTI chief Imran Khan has said that he is not anti-America or anti-India, but he is against the policies of these countries.

Talking to media people at Allama Iqbal International Airport after returning from India on Sunday, the PTI chief said he was against the US drone policy and India’s Kashmir policy of deploying 700,000 troops in Held Kashmir. Khan said his party wanted good relations with all countries. He said Pakistan and India should speak truth to everyone and wage a war against poverty. He opined a civil nuclear power plant should be established on Indo-Pak border.

He was of the view that better relations between India and Pakistan could lead to solution to the Kashmir problem.

Khan said PTI would stage a huge protest on December 22 against inflation in Lahore. He termed launch of Prime Minister’s Business Loan Programme for Youth ahead of LG polls a pre-poll rigging.

He said during meetings with India leaders, he had talked to them about the Indian involvement in Balochistan.

 He said for the purpose of confidence building between the two countries, both should speak truth to each other and live like good neighbours.

Answering a question, he said the PML-N government was running the affairs of the country by levying tax on the poor. He said the PTI would announce its agenda in the December 22 protest.

On this occasion, Shah Mehmood Qureshi said Imran Khan was being copied in India.
