NEW DELHI- The Indian opposition party BJP, which expects to return to power after the ongoing elections, today slammed Pakistan for attacking Narendra Modi and asked it to “mend” its ways, saying the “manner” in which they have been functioning with India “will not work.”
The BJP said Pakistan should not interfere in India’s internal affairs, after its Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan’s strong comments against Mr Modi over Dawood Ibrahim issue.
BJP spokesperson Meenakshi Lekhi said, Mr Modi had never talked about attacking Pakistan and was instead questioning Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde’s attitude of making public the governments efforts to bring back Dawood Ibrahim. “We will tell Islamabad to mend their ways, the manner in which they have been functioning and trying to work with India will not work,” Ms Lekhi said. She said the Pakistani Minister had chosen to react to a statement of Mr Modi which was critical of Indian Home Minister. India did not interfere in electoral politics or internal affairs of other countries and expected the same from them, she said.
