New Delhi, September 29: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s political stunt to attack Modi government’s foreign policy for Pakistan after Uri attack by tweeting a pro pakistan article has stunned the tweeter audience.
The article he endorsed, said that ‘efforts to diplomatically isolate Pakistan are instead isolating India. This invited comments frrom questioning kehriwal’s judgement over national issues and even tagged him “anti national” and “pro Pakistan”.
Excellent article. On Uri, rather than Pak, India seems to be getting isolated internationally

Arvind Kejriwal has over 9 million followers. He shared an article written by former diplomat Melkulangara K Bhadrakumar for The Tribune. The critique claimed that efforts to isolate Pakistan diplomatically after Uri attack are leaving India isolated instead.
While the nation is keenly waiting for befitting reply to Pakistan an endorsement to Pak’s favor from a national leader is highly unacceptable.
The only thing worse than this article is Kejriwal's endorsement of it. Utterly disgraceful https://t.co/iJAXwyzTOk

Although the Delhi CM remained silent when Modi government was attacked by Media for adopting soft diplomacy against Pakistan, the timing for attacking government is not fit. When the nation is breathing a brief moment of relief for some success against the neighbour in isolating it amidst international community, a statement like this from Kejriwal is is like snatching that relief moment from Public.
