Benazir stood for peace with India: Manmohan

Special Correspondent

“She always wanted South Asia to become prosperous”

PANAJI: Reiterating his deep shock and horror at the assassination of the former Pakistan Prime Minister, Benazir Bhutto, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday described her as “one of the outstanding leaders of our sub-continent, who always looked for reconciliation between India and Pakistan.”

Dr. Singh, who was speaking to the media at the Goa International Centre here ahead of a book release function, said: “Ms. Bhutto always expressed her feelings that relations between the two countries should be warm.”

Lamenting that “in her loss we have lost an outstanding personality and an outstanding champion of democracy,” Dr. Singh said she left a “deep impression on our time and the age she lived through. She always wanted South Asia to become a prosperous region in the world.”

Dr. Singh underlined the need for a joint fight against terror, which lurked as a threat to the prosperity of the region. Extending his condolences to her family and to Pakistan, he said: “We all have to pledge to work together to deal with this menace which threatens the people of the civilised world.”
