New Delhi, Dec. 25 (ANI): Taking exception to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif on his birthday in Lahore, Jammu and Kashmir National Panthers Party (JKNPP) leader Bhim Singh said today is also birthday of Jesus Christ, so Prime Minister Modi should have gone to Jerusalem as well.
“Prime Minister Modi has to explain his conduct to the people of this country and, particularly to his own party, because I’m from Kashmir and I know we are facing a big risk under the leadership of Modi, what he shall do with J&K I can’t say,” he said.
“It is astonishing that the Prime Minister of the largest democracy of the world leaving for Pakistan, even as everybody knows that we have a problem with Pakistan,” Singh told ANI.
Stating that India and Pakistan have been talking at different places, even after the infiltration from Pakistan is confirmed by the Indian Government, which is represented by prime Minister Modi, he sought to know whether the Prime Minister had taken his own cabinet, agencies or Parliament into confidence before flying to Lahore that too on the birthday of the Pakistan Prime Minister.
On his way back to New Delhi from Moscow, Prime ministers Modi and Sharif met at the latter’s residence Raiwind Palace, the ancestral home of the Sharifs, in Lahore, where he also discussed Indo-Pak relations with him. “Beyond the noise, a personal connect. The Prime Ministers discuss #IndiaPakistan relations in Raiwind,” tweeted Vikas Swarup, Official Spokesperson, Ministry of External Affairs.
The relations between India and Pakistan have witnessed some positive developments in recent past. The two countries recently decided to launch a comprehensive dialogue after Prime Ministers Modi and Sharif met in Paris.
Earlier on Friday, Prime Minister Modi visited Kabul, where both India and Afghanistan agreed to increase and expand training opportunities for Afghan National Security and Defence Forces in relevant Indian institutions, based on the requirements of Afghanistan.
Prime Minister Modi also reiterated India’s full support to Afghanistan for strengthening its defensive capabilities for preserving its unity and territorial integrity and ensuring security, and strongly supported Afghan government-led reconciliation process, which respects the red lines drawn by the people of Afghanistan and the international community.
