India has managed to de-hyphenate itself from Pakistan in recent years. Despite that, given its proximity to its western neighbour, the India policy of the following leaders remains a matter of significance if not of concern.
Nawaz Sharif, Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and Imran Khan remain top leaders who have been swaying Pakistani masses.
Dubbed the 'Lion of Punjab', Nawaz Sharif promised a 'Message of Peace' to India in his party manifesto on condition that India reverses the action of Article 370 abrogation.
The Pakistan Peoples Party chairperson has been notoriously anti-India with remarkable pro-terrorism petulance. The Bhuttos have been anti-India since the time his maternal grandfather Zulfikar Ali Bhutto waged war against India. His mother Benazir vowed to fight India for 'thousand years' over Kashmir.
The banned PTI leader wields influence despite his absence from the election play-field. The PTI leader has been dubbed 'Taliban Khan' for his pandering to the extremists.
