Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Thursday said that India must reciprocate Prime Minister Imran Khan’s call for dialogue between the two countries.
Taking to Twitter, Bilawal said it would be the youth of the subcontinent “who will pay in blood and coin for generations to come for the shortsighted decisions of a few today”.
The PPP chairman urged New Delhi to heed PM Imran’s calls for peace and said it was “time to de-escalate before it’s too late”.
Earlier, while condemning India’s act of unprovoked aggression, Bilawal had said that innocent people of India and Pakistan would be collateral damage in case of any misadventure.
“Atrocious that the extremist Hindutva government of the so-called largest democracy in the world would risk provoking war between two nuclear armed states, to feed war hysteria at home and help with Modi’s re-election campaign,” he wrote in an earlier tweet.
As escalating tensions fuelled concerns of all-out war between the nuclear-armed neighbours on Wednesday, Prime Minister Imran warned of catastrophic consequences should “better sense” not prevail.
