Congress flays Modi-Sharif meeting

New Delhi: The Congress on Friday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's meeting with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif in Russia, asking what were the "circumstances" for the meeting to be called.

"Pakistan killed an Indian soldier during ceasefire (on the LoC)...and Prime Minister Modi is meeting Nawaz Sharif....this is the government that made tall claims that they will teach Pakistan a lesson," Congress leader Meem Afzaal told reporters.

"Today (Friday), the PM is meeting Nawaz Sharif without any reason...we would like to know what were the circumstances that Modi had to invite Sharif for the meeting," he said.

Modi and Nawaz Sharif met for around an hour on the sidelines of the BRICS summit at Ufa, Russia, on Friday.

The BJP on Friday termed the talks between the two prime ministers a "breakthrough", adding that the bilateral talks were a success because "Pakistan has accepted our definition of terrorism".

Congress' reaction for Modi-Sharief meeting

Opposing whatever Modi does for the sake of opposition

NSA meet @ New Delhi Post Modi/Sharif meet at ULFA

The Congress criticizing the NSA as good old of the UPA regime is totally baseless ; since this new meet has an altogether different spin post the Mynamar Special Forces Operation. Hope Pakistan understands and cooperates in jointly eliminating the terrorist Camps on their soil rather than unilateral Blitzeriks b Indian Special Forces Operation.
