After Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan backed Narendra Modi for a second term, Congress has that Pakistan has ‘officially sided’ with Modi and vote for him would be a vote for Pakistan.
Congress’ chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala launched a scathing attack on Modi after Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said ‘he believes there may be a better chance of peace talks with India and settling the Kashmir issue if Modi’s party BJP wins the general elections.’
“Pak has officially allied with Modi! A vote for Modi is a vote for Pakistan!” Surjewala tweeted. “Modi ji, first there was love for Nawaz Sharif and now Imran Khan is your dear friend,” he added in a tweet in Hindi.
Earlier, Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan said that said there may be a better chance of peace talks with India if PM Narendra Modi’s BJP comes to power again.
Khan said that the Congress party might be too scared to seek a settlement with Pakistan over Kashmir, fearing a backlash from the right wing if they come to power.
“Perhaps if the BJP – a right-wing party – wins, some kind of settlement in Kashmir could be reached,” Imran Khan told journalists in an interview.
