Imran Khan says he wants to improve ties with India
"If India is ready to resolve disputes, we are ready to take two steps, but they need to take that one step.... blame game will take us nowhere," he said in a televised address in Islamabad while declaring victory in the general elections.
He started his press interaction with a big thanks to people of Pakistan for stepping out and actively participating in the voting. He also shared his disappointment over how Indian media gave coverage to the elections.
"I felt like I was a Bollywood villain," he said.
Talking about his past, he said: "I came into politics because I wanted Pakistan to become the country that Jinnah had envisioned. This has been a historic election. I especially want to thank the people of Balochistan who despite terrorism came out in huge numbers to vote."
"We are witnessing the strengthening of democracy in Pakistan. The election process was completed successfully despite many terror attacks," he added.
The cricketer-turned-politician who began his political struggle 22 years ago added: "God has given me the chance to make my dream come true."
"All my policies will focus on strengthening the weak," he asserted.
