Congress attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday for “playing politics” with national security and said he was offering “platitudes” to Pakistan as if he is going to fight elections in that country instead of understanding the anger of people in India.
Congress leader Manish Tewari said, “Prime Minister has suddenly started lecturing the people of Pakistan about its new developmental imperatives. It seems Narendra Modi would be fighting the next elections in Pakistan rather than understanding the depth of anger which is there in the people of India.”
“...He has tried to change the goalpost by talking about malnutrition and other development indices like poverty and unemployment. These are battles India won far back.”
Addressing a massive gathering at a BJP meet on Saturday in Kozhikode, Modi challenged Pakistan to go to war against poverty and unemployment.
