It is none other than India who is isolated now. Instead of spreading negativity, India should join our vision to increase economic connectivity . New Delhi should support our efforts to bring economic prosperity in the region. China is set to become world’s largest economy and Pakistan will reap its dividends as well. All regional countries should join us and increase trade with China. Any country joining CPEC will increase prospects for all member countries.

No operation is successful without public support. It is appreciable to this support is sought for operation Radd-ul-Fasaad. The intelligence for this operation needs to be efficient and accurate. It should not affect innocent people. The entire Pakistan needs to be united for success of this operation. It should not be against any ethnic community. The common people should inform concerned authorities about suspects around them. This is very important operation for the future of our country.
