Nirmala Sitharaman sees ‘Congress ploy’ behind Imran Khan’s ‘endorsement’ of Modi for second term

Posted on

Defence Minister of India Nirmala Sitharaman on Wednesday alleged that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s statement ‘endorsing’ his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for a second term could be a ‘ploy by the Congress to oust him.’

Sitharaman, in an interview with news agency ANI, said: “I wouldn’t know why such statements are being made. Every time such statements are made and this is individually my perception and not my party’s or the government’s take. There have been many eminent leaders of the Congress who went there (Pakistan) to seek help to oust Prime Minister Narendra Modi. They went there saying ‘Modi hatane ke liye hamen madad karo’ (help us to oust Modi). I wonder whether this is also a part of the scheme of things which have been put by Congress. I don’t know what to make of this honestly.”
