The restoration of Pak-Indo cricket relations was described as a “milestone for peace in the region” by Governor Latif Khosa. The governor said the Indian prime minister would soon visit Pakistan.
Khosa was speaking at the certificate distributing ceremony of the 96th Management Course and 11th Senior Management Course at the National School of Public Policy on Tuesday.
Addressing the ceremony, Khosa said all institutions should function within their constitutional limits. An imbalance, he said will harm the country. He termed democracy as the “best solution for all crises”, adding that democracy was the only way to progress.
The governor criticised former presidents General Ziaul Haq and General Pervez Musharraf for imposing martial law that he said had harmed the country and democracy. The people face crises like extremism and terrorism as a result, Khosa said, adding that the Pakistan Peoples Part was trying its best to help the public.
He said the Constitution was one of the PPP’s greatest achievements. Lauding the federal government’s policies, he said all policies should be “people-centric, not elite-centric”. “The PPP has launched programmes to eliminate poverty, like the Benazir Income Support Programme and increased salaries,” he added.
