Party should be more responsible. All should be aware at present.” Stressing the need for a healthy foreign policy, he said there was a need for such policy to safeguard the state.
“The people should be responsible in the present situation and the party should be more responsible. All should be aware in the present context,” the former President said. Stressing on the need of a healthy foreign policy, he opined that such policy was necessary even for protecting the nation.
