He congratulated the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader for his party emerging as the largest political party in the National Assembly there in the recent elections.
The PM expressed hope that democracy will take deeper roots in Pakistan, a PMO statement said. He also reiterated his vision of peace and development in the entire neighbourhood, the statement said.
Meanwhile, in Islamabad, the PTI said in a statement that Khan thanked Prime Minister Modi for his good wishes. “The solution to conflicts should be found through dialogue,” Khan was quoted as saying in the statement.
According to media reports, Imran Khan had said he will take oath as the Prime Minister on August 11. Although the PTI has emerged as the single largest party in the National Assembly in the July 25 polls, it is short of numbers to form its government independently.
