A vote for Modi is a vote for Pakistan, Cong volte-face after Imran's bid for Modi's tie-up

April 10, 2019
NEW DELHI: The ruling BJP all the time has been accusing the Congress of "speaking Pakistan's language" but now the Congress says "Pakistan has officially allied with Modi!"

The apparent swapping of roles followed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's statement that he sees better chances of peace talks over Kashmir with an India under Prime Minister Narendra Modi after the forthcoming Indian elections.

"Perhaps if the BJP, a right-wing party, wins, some kind of settlement in Kashmir could be reached," Imran Khan was reported as having said.

Imran Khan said, on the other hand, the Congress (if it wins the elections) as a ruling party might be "too scared" for a settlement with Pakistan over Kashmir fearing a backlash.

In a strong reaction, Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala tweeted: "Pakistan has officially allied with Modi! A vote for Modi is a vote for Pakistan... Modi-ji, first Nawaz Sharif, now Imran Khan is your friend. The secret is out."

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Jammu and Kashmir politicians Omar Abdullah and Mehbooba Mufti also mounted an attack on Modi and the ruling alliance.

"Why does Pakistan want Modi-ji to win? PM Modi, please tell the nation how deep your relationship is with Pakitan? All Indians should know that if PM Modi wins then crackers will be burst in Pakistan," tweeted AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal.

"Pakistan mein macha shor, Narendra Modi once more," Kejriwal said.

Mehbooba Mufti said: "Bhakts scratching their heads & at wit ends wondering if they should praise Imran Khan or not."

In fact, the relations between India and Pakistan nosedived after the Pulwama terror attack in Kashmir that killed 40 CRPF jawans and the subsequent IAF attack on Balakot terror camps deep inside Pakistan. An aerial attack by Pakistan followed which was repelled by Indian air force, leading to losses of fighters on either side.
