New Delhi, Sep 15 : Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar, on Sunday, praised Pakistan for its hospitality and accused the Modi government at the Centre of spreading a false narrative about the country for political gains.
Speaking at an event for minorities at party headquarters, Pawar said, “People here say Pakistanis are facing injustice and are unhappy but it is not true. Such statements are being said only for political gains without understanding the actual situation in Pakistan. Ruling party here is spreading false things for political benefits.”
“I have visited Pakistan and received hospitality there. Pakistanis believe that even if they can’t go to India to meet their relatives, they treat an Indian as their relative,” he added.
Modi government revoked the special status of Jammu and Kashmir that was granted under Article 370.
