Pak’s ploy to stop India’s leadership:
Pakistan has taken a new step to prevent India from taking the lead in solving the Corona in the coalition of SAARC nations. Pak was a participant in a video convention meeting held between SAARC counterparts. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has called on all SAARC countries to fight corona. But India has taken the lead in this task and the SAARC secretary is not involved. So we consider this to be a sarcasm activity, ”Pak said.
