Say overall law and order situation has improved in the country.
Islamabad: Speaking in Radio Pakistan’s program, defence analyst Lt. General (Retired) Amjad Shoaib said: “India is against the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project since its creation. It is also reported by a portion of media that India has established a separate cell to derail the CPEC project. It is the history that due to the propaganda of same nature had made Kala Bagh Dam controversial. In recent days, our law enforcement agencies booked an Indian spy from Balochistan, who admitted that India wants to stop Gwadar port project. A strong lobby in Kabul is also in favor of India and by using them the Indian intelligence agencies are using Indian soil against Pakistan. India provides training to terrorist in boarder areas of Afghanistan and then sends them in Pakistan. Afghanistan’s chief executive Abdullah Abduallh has strong ties with India as he got married from India and also built his house in India.”

Defense analyst Lt. Gen. Moeen-ud-Din Haider said: “We as a nation must keep in mind that India has open plans against Pakistan in general and CPEC in particular. We should remember that Indian prime minister himself went to China to pursue it against completion of CPEC. So, Pakistan should take all possible measures to complete CPEC as early as possible. Western countries, led by America are not happy with Chinese success either. They are giving a tacit approval to Indian nefarious designs against CPEC. Hence, Pakistan should promptly put its own house in order and devise a mechanism for completion of CPEC.”

Defence analyst Major General (R) Farooq Malik said: “The Indian spy agency RAW is involved in negative activities in Balochistan. The main aim behind these activities is to stop the historic China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project. The civil and military leadership is on same page to counter Indian backed terrorism whereas the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) is clearly stated that he will not tolerate any type of hurdle which can harm the peace and prosperity of the country. India wants to stop the progress and development process of Pakistan. India is using Afghan soil against Pakistan and its nineteen consulates are working there in Afghanistan.”

Defence analyst Brigadier, Retired, Mehmood Shah said: “China has its own interest in China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project and it will not spare any effort of India to derail this project. Although, the Afghan government has a nexus with Indian government and both wants to stop the process of peace and prosperity in Pakistan whereas we are not clear about the role of Iran in this regard so far. India has strong hold in Kabul and it is using Afghan land to destabilize Pakistan. The arrest of Indian spy agent from Balochistan who entered in Pakistan by using Iran’s border is a matter of concern but Iranian government positively responded on the issue and assured their full support in the investigation of the matter.”

Defense analyst Dr. Pervaiz Iqbal Cheema said: “We were already saying that RAW, in collaboration with Afghan agency, is working to destabilize Pakistan and sabotage CPEC. Realizing the advantage of CPEC for Pakistan, our neighboring countries are trying to drag Pakistan back into dark ages and trying to disrupt CPEC project for that matter. Recently arrested RAW agent was leading a terrorist network, which had been working on multiple agendas, i.e., damaging CPEC, destabilizing Baluchistan and propping up terrorism in Pakistan. India itself has been sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan since long, but global community is deliberately overlooking this fact because of its vested interests in India. It has become glaringly evident by recent unfolding events that India has been contributing regressively in the region. Since Pakistan cannot remain oblivious to this fact, it should chalk out well thought-out counter strategy.”
