Congress warns Modi against 'inconsistent' foreign policy towards Pakistan
This government's foreign policy changes faster than the weather. It has become almost impossible for our party to track its policy towards Pakistan,
New Delhi: Hitting out at the Narendra Modi government for its “inconsistent” foreign policy, the Congress party on Wednesday said the government must refrain from knee-jerk reactions vis-a-vis Pakistan.
“This government's foreign policy changes faster than the weather. It has become almost impossible for our party to track its foreign policy as well its policy towards Pakistan,” Congress spokesman Abhishek Manu Singhvi told media persons in the national capital.
“One day they are sulking, the next day Prime Minister would suddenly land in Lahore. One day there are no talks, the next day there would be talks at the highest level,” he added.
“These knee-jerk reactions should stop. We are ready to go along with the government if there is a consistent, stable, long-term policy on these issues,” Singhvi said.
He said that the Prime Minister spoke about Balochistan, but said nothing about the prevailing situation in Jammu and Kashmir.
“Won't your remarks sound more genuine and real if you were able to tackle the problem in your own backyard in Kashmir? The Chief Minster of Jammu and Kashmir, your coalition partner, has accused the central government for all the ills of Kashmir."
Singhvi said, “The real problem is that you have not sorted out the internal contradictions in the lust for power."
"We have a huge problem at hand in Kashmir which you did not touch upon in your 95 minutes speech on Independence Day.”
