Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a “danger to Pakistan”, said members of the Pakistan Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs. They criticised Pak Prime Minister Imran Khan’s reported statement that Islamabad and New Delhi have a better chance of peace talks if Narendra Modi is reelected as the prime minister in India.
“Perhaps if the BJP wins, some kind of settlement in Kashmir could be reached,” he was quoted as saying.
“You (Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi) said that India is getting ready for an adventure, [then] why did the prime minister say that dialogue can only take place if Modi wins the Indian elections?” asked PPP lawmaker Sherry Rehman.
“A state has friendly relations with another state, not with a personality,” she said, expressing bewilderment over how the prime minister could express his “preference” of who would win in another country’s elections.
