BJP FAVOURS PAK-INDIA COMPOSITE DIALOGUE PROCESS, ASKS PAKISTAN TO COME FORWARD FOR SAARC PROGRESS: MURALIDHAR RAO
 

Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday supported the composite dialogue process being initiated by the two countries to come closer for their trade, economic and commercial ties and concentrate more to strengthen the SAARC, the trade bloc which is currently chaired by Pakistan, according to the National General Secretary of BJP Mr. P Muralidhar Rao.
 

Presiding over the Interactive Session with visiting Delegation from Faisalabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FCCI), Pakistan to India under aegis of PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry here today, Mr. Rao said that the successful take off SAARC depended entirely on the thickening of relationship between India and Pakistan as no any other country in the region was hindrance to the progress of SAARC.
 

Mr. Rao who especially flew in from Hyderabad to preside over the Session said that India and Pakistan needed to deepen the composite dialogue process despite road blocks and speed breakers in their ties and seek the redressal of their existing problems without seeking third party intervention.
 

“The present government under Prime Minister Mr. Modi had the huge mandate and whatever decisions are taken by the government led by him would be for the benefit of India.  What is needed is the cooperation of Pakistan so that the relationship for cementing their ties progress, faster and without any pause”, said Mr. Rao.
 

On the occasion President FCCI Mr. Rizwan Ashraf pointed out that out of $2.7 billion trade volumes between India and Pakistan, $2.5 billion favours India and therefore, demanded a higher market access of Pakistani products to India to balancing the existing gap.
 

Among others who spoke on the occasion supporting thickening of relationship between India and Pakistan comprised Past President Mr. Ravi Wig, First Secretary (Trade), Pakistan High Commission Mr. Syed Zirgham Raza and Secretary General of PHD Chamber Mr. Saurabh Sanyal.
 

It was agreed upon that PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry would also play a critical role in building better relationship between India and Pakistan on trade and commerce front with due endorsement from the governments of the two nations.
