India trying to 'implode' Pakistan under new doctrine, says Imran Khan

Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has accused India of trying to sabotage his party's "reform movement", a media report said.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, the former cricketer-turned-politician said that since India was aware it could not defeat a nuclear-armed state militarily, it was trying to "implode" Pakistan under a new "doctrine", Dawn online reported.

"It is apparent that India is (trying to) implode Pakistan. Under (this) doctrine, it wants to create chaos in Pakistan and wants the ongoing reform movement against corruption in the country to fail," he said.

The PTI chief had earlier alleged that India was helping Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, saying that whenever the government came under pressure, tensions would flare up along the Line of Control (LoC).

He also slammed Sharif for not raising the issue of Indian involvement in Balochistan and Karachi during his recent visit to the UN.

The PTI chief alleged that links had been established between the India's intelligence agency RAW and Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain, but the government was silent on this front too. Instead, "the rulers have been speaking the language of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi," he claimed.

On the other hand, Modi was approaching every forum to try and have Pakistan declared a terrorist state. He said it was only because of China that India had so far not been able to achieve its aim.
