New Delhi [India], Oct. 9 (ANI): The Congress Party on Sunday alleged that the army, which is the most important element in Pakistan, sets the country's agenda and policy against India.

Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit told ANI that on the other hand the Indian armed forces put forth their inputs, which are taken seriously.

"See, Basit's statement also said that the Indian armed forces, air force, army may also be involved in framing India's policy towards Pakistan could be true because ultimately our army, navy and air force play a role in securing our borders and because there has been troubled relations with Pakistan and all the three forces have always played a role. Obviously, the inputs would also be necessary and I am sure they are taken," Dikshit said.

"Similarly the three armed forces also give there inputs and I'm sure with a lot of seriousness the inputs are also taken and be a part of all the inputs that frame our strategy and policy against Pakistan. But in case of Pakistan, the army is the most important element," 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, the Pakistani envoy said the army had important inputs to give on India, Afghanistan and all other security-related issues. (ANI)
