Top Indian leader stuns all with his heaps of praise for Pakistan, lashes out at PM Modi for false propaganda
ISLAMBAD - Top Indian leader stuns all at home and in Islamabad with his heaps of praise for Pakistan, lashes out at PM Modi for false propaganda.
Indian Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar on Saturday praised Pakistan for its hospitality and said that people in Pakistan are happy but the BJP-led government at the Centre has been spreading lies about Pakistan only for political gains.
"I have visited Pakistan and received their hospitality...It is a misplaced fact that people in Pakistan are unhappy. However, the present government has been spreading lies about Pakistan for their own political benefits," Pawar said.
The NCP chief made the statement while addressing a special event for minorities at NCP headquarters in Mumbai. During his address, the veteran politician also talked about issues like mob lynching and Article 370.
Pawar also criticized the Centre for abrogating Article 370, which granted special status to the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, and said that the article existed to give some special powers to people of Jammu and Kashmir.
"By scrapping Article 370, the government wants to convey that they are opposing a minority state and in the process, this action of theirs will lead to more terrorism in the Valley," Pawar noted.
