In this regard Prime Minister Manmohan Singh held a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) on Thursday, Mar 12 and reviewed the developments in Pakistan, where political instability is deepening.
However India feels, an unstable Pakistan will strain the relations between the two neighbours. Political unstability would also mar the investigation into 26/11. India also feels that Pakistan's chaos may trigger a rise in violence in Kashmir.
In the meeting India chose not to comment explicitly on the internal affairs of Pakistan. The political climate worsened after Zardari sacked the government of then Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif following the Supreme Court's disqualification of Nawaz Sharif and his brother over old charges of corruption.
