Imran's minister admits Pakistan's role in Pulwama attack

A Pakistani minister on Thursday admitted the Imran Khan government's role in the Pulwama terror attack that claimed the lives of 40 CRPF personnel. Addressing the Pakistan National Assembly, Imran Khan's cabinet minister Fawad Chaudhry credited the Pak PM and his party PTI for the ‘success in Pulwama’ and hailed it as a great achievement. “Humne India ko ghus ke mara (We have hit India in its own territory),” the minister told the parliament.

Fawad Chaudhry’s statement in the National Assembly was in reaction to Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Sardar Ayaz Sadiq's disclosure about a meeting between Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and army chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa after an encounter between Indian and Pakistani fighter jets near the Line of Control. Fawad Chaudhry termed Sardar Ayaz Sadiq’s statement false and said, “The victory we achieved in Pulwama is the victory of this nation under the leadership of Imran Khan. You are also a part of this victory.” Qureshi told a visibly flustered General Bajwa unless he released Indian pilot Abhinandan Varthaman whose plane crashed across the Line of Control, India would attack Pakistan "that night by 9 pm."
