Congress criticises Modi’s Pakistan visit

New Delhi, Dec 25 (IANS) The Congress party on Friday criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s surprise visit to Pakistan, saying diplomacy cannot be fun and games but needs seriousness and maturity.

“Relation between India and Pakistan is important. Diplomacy needs seriousness and maturity, it’s not a fun,” senior Congress leader Anand Sharma told reporters here at a press conference.

Sharma rejected External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj’s claim that Modi’s gesture was statesman like.

“I reject completely Sushma Swaraj’s claim that this is statesman like,” he said.

Sharma also claimed that Modi’s Pakistan visit was pre-arranged and not a spontaneous decision.

“We think it was pre-arranged and not a spontaneous decision. An industrialist, who has a private business with ruling establishment in Pakistan is there already; so how is the PM visit spontaneous?,” Sharma wondered.
