Congress questions Modi’s Pakistan visit

Published

on

The Congress on Friday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Pakistan, saying serious information like this should not have been revealed through Twitter.

“It is unfortunate that we get to know about prime minister’s visit through a tweet… India and Pakistan relations are not so good as yet that he stops over there on his way back from another country,” Congress spokesperson Ajoy Kumar told

“The parliament session got over just a few days back, why was the parliament and the country left in dark. Why didn’t the prime minister take the country and parliament in confidence,” he questioned.

Congress leader Manish Tewari called it an “adventure” by the Indian prime minister.

“This adventure of prime minister will have serious impact on national security, there were no changes in relationship (with Pakistan) by NSA talks, or Heart of Asia conference. Eventually prime minister needs to answer what has changed in ground situation,” Tewari said.

In a sudden development on Friday, Modi said he will meet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Lahore in the afternoon on his way back to New Delhi from Afghanistan.

Modi tweeted greetings to Sharif on his 66th birthday and wished him good health. “I wish the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Mr Nawaz Sharif on his birthday and pray that he remains in wonderful health,” tweeted Modi from Afghanistan where he landed in the wee hours while returning from Moscow.

Friday also marks the 139th birth anniversary of Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Akhilesh questions ‘intention’ behind deferring farm laws

Akhilesh Yadav Sad

Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has questioned the ‘intentions’ of the Modi government to defer farm laws by one and a half year.

“The BJP government has extended a proposal to defer the implementation of the farm laws for the next one and a half year. The move is illogical and without any rationale. Deferring implementation of the law will not change the consequences that will follow once the law is introduced,” he said.

Akhilesh further said, “By deferring implementation of the law, the BJP government is trying to counter popular public sentiment which is growing in favour of the agitating farmers and against the law makers. The government will eventually implement the laws before the elections in 2024 to benefit the capitalists.”

The SP president has directed the party leaders and workers to dedicate their Republic Day celebrations to farmers who are protesting against the new farm laws. He asked party men to reach the venues where Indian flag will be unfurled at the tehsil level on tractors carrying the Tricolour.

He said that by taking out tractor rallies, the SP workers and leaders will only reassert their support to the agitating farmers.

Akhilesh also attacked the ruling BJP for the delay in clearing cane dues of farmers, increase in power tariff and raids by power department officials on farmers for recovery of power dues.
