Imran Khan vows to grant Pakistan citizenship to Afghan refugees

The sale of bulletproof luxury vehicles, helicopters and even eight buffalo drew hundreds of curious onlookers but few buyers to an "austerity-drive" auction held by the Pakistani government this week.

Responding to the points of Akhtar Mengal regarding the status of Afghan refugees and Bengalis, the PM said his party had signed an agreement with BNP-Mengal for the return of these refugees. "Accompanying ministers will also meet their counterparts to discuss bilateral cooperation", said a statement issued by the Foreign Office (FO).

Minister of State for External Affairs VK Singh on Monday claimed that Pakistan's newly-elected Prime Minister is very much a puppet of Pakistan Army and that the army is still ruling the country just like it used to do before. Two of the cars are 4,000cc bullet-proof vehicles; the ministry of interior will issue a permit for handing over the bulletproof cars to the successful bidders.
