US aid to Pakistan may go in vain : Mc GainApril 1st, 2009 - 2:28 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Apr.1 (ANI): Former US Presidential candidate and Republican Party Senator from Arizona John Mc Gain has said that the US aid to Pakistan may eventually go in vain.
Skeptic about Pakistan’s utilization of the US assistance, Mc Gain viewed a large part of the aid failing to reach people who are in real need of it.
“Most part of the US will fail to reach the destitute people and those who deserve it badly,” The News quoted Mc Gain, as saying.
Talking to media persons here, Mc Gain ruled out possibility of a military coup in Pakistan, but expressed serious concerns over the reports about Pakistan’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) alleged links with outlawed terror outfits.
Commenting on the US led drone strikes on terror camps in the tribal region along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, he said that the drones have proved effective in dismantling the terror safe haven in Pakistan.
“Drone strikes within Pakistan can be an option to win war on terror but it must not be the sole and only strategy in this context,” Mc Gain added. (ANI)
