New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi should be given a free hand on Pakistan "since (the) buck stops with him", BJP MP Subramanian Swamy said on Saturday.
"Namo be given a free hand on Pakistan since he is working to a strategy," the Bharatiya Janata Party leader tweeted, a day after Modi's surprise visit to Pakistan.
"As PM, he must (be) allowed risky decisions since (the) buck stops with him," Swamy added.
On Friday, Modi took everyone by surprise by flying to Lahore to meet his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif while on his way home from Kabul.
Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif welcomed the initiative of the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to visit Lahore. Modi was warmly welcomed by Sharif, who then took the PM to his ancestral home in Raiwind.
The two had also met in Paris during COP-21 and also had had a surprise meeting in Bangkok.
