New Delhi [India], Oct. 9 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Sunday alleged that the government in Pakistan is a puppet in the hands of its army as they are the ones, who form policies against India and provide support to terror outfits.

BJP leader Zafar Islam told ANI that Pakistani Army is a driving seat for providing logistic support to all terrorist activities.

"We are not surprised. We know that the Pakistan civilian government is merely a puppet in the hands of Pakistan Army. We also know the Pakistani Army, what we call them as 'hukumran', are the one on driving seat and their policies always untie India policies and ISI is a part of Pakistani Army and they are responsible for providing logistic support to all terrorist activities," Isla said.

"So, we are not overly concerned that army is responsible for the Indian related policy of the Pakistani Government because we know that they are the one who play the role in forming the policy against India and providing all support to Pakistani terror outfits, who are actually exporting terrorism in India," he added while reacting to Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit's remark that the Pakistani Army has an important role to play in Islamabad's India policy.

Speaking to a national daily, he said the army had important inputs to give on India, Afghanistan and all other security-related issues. (ANI)
