Jalandhar, Jun 19 (UNI) Pakistan Muslim League (Nawaz) Joint Secretary and former Pakistan Legislative Assembly member Peer Ghulam Farid has stressed the need for providing visa stamp facilities at the borders of the both the countries.
Mr Farid who was here on a personal visit, while addressing a press conference today said that the governments of both the countries should open more corridors so that people of different religions could visit different religious places situated in both the countries.
He also said that visa stamp facility should be provided at the borders of both the countries, instead of Delhi and Islamabad, so that people could easily visit each other's countries.
On development issue, he said, "India's Punjab is more developed as compare to Pakistan's Punjab in almost all the spheres. The difference between the two Punjabs is because of the military rule in Pakistan, which has hampered the development process there." When asked that who was to be blamed for military rule in Pakistan for so many years, Peer Farid said that Pak politicians are to be blamed who could not do much for establishing a democratic government there. However, he said that the present government would do all out efforts to maintain democracy in Pakistan and cordial relations with India.
On condemned Indian prisoners in Pakistan's jail, he said most of the politician are in favour that clemency should be given to Sarabjeet Singh and other Indian prisoners languishing in jails across the border.
