He said that PTI’s Kashmir policy would be substantive and not restricted to declaratory platitudes.
Khan blamed former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for “undermining the Kashmiri struggle for self-determination, when he became the first Pakistani PM to visit India officially for Modi’s swearing-in ceremony and did not meet the Hurriyat Conference leadership in New Delhi.He also blamed former dictator Pervez Musharraf for causing a great damage to the Kashmir issue by declaring the UN resolutions on Kashmir out-dated.
