Pak video exposes ISI plan: Amarinder Singh

Chandigarh, 6 Nov (live24india) : Reacting strongly to the use of pictures of Khalistani separatist leaders in the Pakistani video song on the Kartarpur Corridor, Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Wednesday said this clearly endorsed his stand that there was a hidden ISI agenda behind the historic corridor.

Talking informally with media persons on the sidelines of the special session of the Assembly here to mark the 550th Prakash Purb of Guru Nanak Dev, he said he had been warning against the ISI role in the Pakistan decision to open the corridor since the day their Prime Minister announced it.

Even though the corridor marked the realization of the long-cherished dream of the entire Sikh community, including him, to pay their respects at the historic shrine, India could not afford to ignore the ISI threat that was attached to it, said the Chief Minister, stressing the need for extreme caution.

“This is what I have been cautioning against all along: they (the ISI) has a negative agenda behind it. We have to be very careful,” he said, in response to a question.

The video, he said, had only exposed the true intent of the ISI.

“On the one hand, they are seemingly showing us compassion and humanity, and on the other, they seem intent on using the corridor to woo the Indian Sikhs to promote the ISI-backed 2020 Khalistan Referendum and creating sleeper cells here”, Amarinder Singh said.
