Former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah on Thursday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf chief Imran Khan’s statement to have better relations with India is kind-hearted. As the counting of votes in Pakistan General Elections 2018 is still underway, several reports and leads are suggesting a win for Imran Khan’s party as he is all likely to become the next Prime Minister of Pakistan. Earlier in the evening, Imran Khan in a press conference had said that he would like to resolve the Kashmir issue and hopes to have better relations with India.

Speaking at the press conference, Imran Khan said that he was one of those Pakistanis who wants good relations with India. The PTI chief said that if the leadership in New Delhi is willing, he would step forward to resolve the Kashmir issue. This will also be good for the subcontinent.
