Saeed’s plans against Rajnath’s Pak visit will not succeed: BSF
A day before Home Minister Rajnath Singh visits Pakistan amidst threats of protest by LeT founder Hafiz Saeed, the Border Security Force (BSF) on Tuesday said it was sure the Pak Rangers and other authorities there will take adequate measures to foil the plans of the terror mastermind.
Calling Saeed’s plans of undertaking massive protests and march towards the Attari-Wagah border when Singh steps on Pakistani soil a “political” move, Border Security Force chief KK Sharma said the border guarding forces on both sides have been “sensitised” and they will ensure that the SAARC Home Ministers meeting to be held tomorrow in Islamabad is not disrupted.
“This (Saeed’s protest call) is the internal matter of Pakistan and I am very sure that my counterparts Pak Rangers are more than competent to handle this issue. I am sure this (Saeed’s threat) is not going to disrupt the SAARC meeting. Hafiz Saeed will not be successful,” he said.
Sharma, who only last week returned from Pakistan after holding the annual bilateral Director General-level talks with the Rangers, said both the forces have also discussed measures to mount effective vigil at the Attari-Wagah border which is thronged by large crowds that witness the daily retreat ceremony in the evening.
