New Delhi: The Congress on Friday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Pakistan, saying serious information like this should not have been revealed through Twitter.
"It is unfortunate that we get to know about prime minister's visit through a tweet... India and Pakistan relations are not so good as yet that he stops over there on his way back from another country," Congress spokesperson Ajoy Kumar told reporters.
"The parliament session got over just a few days back, why was the parliament and the country left in dark. Why didn't the prime minister take the country and parliament in confidence," he questioned.
Congress leader Manish Tewari called it an "adventure" by the Indian prime minister.
"This adventure of prime minister will have serious impact on national security, there were no changes in relationship (with Pakistan) by NSA talks, or Heart of Asia conference. Eventually prime minister needs to answer what has changed in ground situation," Tewari said.
In a sudden development on Friday, Modi said he will meet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Lahore in the afternoon on his way back to New Delhi from Afghanistan.
Modi also wished Sharif on his birthday.
Friday also marks the 139th birth anniversary of Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
Indian Youth Congress organized a protest under leadership of IYC President Amrinder Singh Raja against PM's visit to Lahore today to celebrate Nawaz Sharif's birthday while Jawans were being killed at the border.
