New Delhi, Apr. 5 (ANI): Training guns at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy and demanding an apology from him for inviting Pakistan’s Joint Investigation Team (JIT) to probe the Pathankot terror attack, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said that the nation would not forgive him for his unwarranted remark.
“We may have forgiven you (Kejriwal) keeping large hearts when you called the esteemed Prime Minister of a 125 crore Indians a coward and a psychopath. But remember the country won’t forgive you for calling the Prime Minister an ISI agent,” BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra told the media here.
“What kind of message are you sending to the international community? Whose hands are you strengthening by uttering such kind of words?” he asked.
Citing Prime Minister Modi’s recent visit to the gulf countries and the United Nations, Patra said “When the whole world is paying heed to Prime Minister Modi’s idea of tackling the terrorism, using such use words by an elected Chief Minister is highly condemnable.”
Kejriwal earlier said Prime Minister Modi’s invitation to Pakistan’s Joint Investigation Team (JIT), which gave a clean chit to the ISI for the Pathankot attack, was a ‘monumental’ foreign policy failure and a stab in the back of ‘Bharat Mata’.
The AAP chief also alleged that Prime Minister Modi had entered into a deal with his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif during his Lahore visit in December last year.
“The Prime Minister called over ISI officials despite being aware that it was behind the Pathankot terror attack which amounted to a clean chit. Now, the JIT has reportedly claimed that India had itself staged the attack,” Kejriwal said.
Reports in a section of the Pakistani media earlier stated that the JIT after returning from India claimed that the concerned authorities failed to provide evidence to prove that Pakistan-based terrorists had stormed the Indian Air Force base in Pathankot. (ANI)
