Disgruntled Indian defence minister offers services of Indian Army to Pakistani PM Imran Khan
*Karnal, Haryana - Disgruntled Indian defence minister Rajnath Singh offers services of Indian Army to Pakistani PM Imran Khan for wiping out terrorism from Pakistan. *
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday hit out at Pakistan over not doing enough to act against terrorists roaming freely on its soil. The Defence Minister, while suggesting a solution to Pakistan that involves India's intervention, also dropped in a word of advice to the Pakistani Prime Minister.
"I would like to make a suggestion to Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. If you are serious enough to fight against terror, we are ready to assist you. If you want our Army, then we will send them there for your help," Mr Singh said at a rally in Karnal in Haryana, where the assembly election will be held on October 21. Results will be out three days later.
Ties between India and Pakistan have been severely strained since the start of this year after a suicide attack claimed by the group Jaish-e-Mohammed killed 40 soldiers in Jammu and Kashmir in February.
Months later, the government scrapped special status to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and divided the state into two Union Territories. Since then Pakistan has been raising the Kashmir issue in international forums.
