Atiqa Odho on Saturday stressed for a need to pass a law to make the country self reliant in production of tomatoes amidst the reports that Indian farmers have chosen not to export tomatoes to Pakistan.
“I don’t understand why we need Indian tomatoes when we have so much agricultural land in Pakistan to grow our own??? A law should be passed that no land must be wasted as just investment and has to be cultivated if for agricultural purposes,” she said on Twitter.
A section of Indian media and politicians have been levelling allegations against Pakistan since a suicide bomber killed over 40 soldiers in Occupied Kashmir last week.
Videos have emerged of Indian farmers announcing that they would not export tomatoes to Pakistan.
The Indian media has been fanning anti-Pakistan sentiments and calling for isolation of Pakistan
