Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has said that he “was not worthy” of a Nobel Prize, and the person who solves the Kashmir dispute should be considered for the honor. He was tending to calls by individuals via social media to grant him a Nobel Peace Prize for sending back an Indian Air Force officer captured by the Pakistan Army.
He commented on the issue through his Twitter account.
I am not worthy of the Nobel Peace prize. The person worthy of this would be the one who solves the Kashmir dispute according to the wishes of the Kashmiri people and paves the way for peace & human development in the subcontinent.
