‘ARMY CHIEF’S STATEMENT TRAGIC’
Meanwhile, NC provincial Spokesperson Imran Nabi Dar condemened Army chief’s statement about using strike drones.“It’s tragic that Army chief had to issue such a statement which tantamount to declaring war against our own people. After what we witnessed during Operation All Out, this new threat of using drone strikes is something that can inflict massive losses, both human as well as economic, on our people,” he said. Asking the Army chief to review his statement, Imran said, “With such open threats is Army chief trying to reduce situation in J&K to that of Afghanistan and FATA region of Pakistan?”
