Despite extending 'hand of friendship' I got betrayal from Pakistan, claims disgruntled Indian PM Modi

*NEW DELHI:* Despite extending 'hand of friendship' I got betrayal from Pakistan, claims disgruntled Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that despite extending a "hand of friendship", he got "betrayal" from Pakistan. "I invited Pakistani PM for oath-taking ceremony in 2014. We had extended a hand of friendship towards Pakistan. I visited Lahore, but we got betrayal," PM Modi said.

The PM made these remarks while speaking at a rally in Delhi's Ramlila Ground. While addressing the rally, PM Modi also accused the Opposition parties of spreading lies about the Citizenship Amendment Act and the proposed National Register of Citizens and said that that CAA and NRC will not apply to the Muslims of the country.

Addressing a rally at Ramlila Maidan here over government`s decision to provide ownership rights to over 40 lakh residents of unauthorized colonies in Delhi, PM Modi said that BJP-led government had not brought NRC and it was made when Congress was in power.

He said that the rumours of detention centres being spread by "Congress and urban Naxals" were false. He said the new law was not applicable to citizens of the country.

"A lot of lies are being spread about NRC as well. It was made during the Congress regime. Where were the protesters then? We did not make it, nor did we bring it to the Parliament or announce it," PM Modi said.
