New Delhi, July 10:  Congress leader Manish Tewari on Friday termed the joint statement between India and Pakistan on the sidelines of the BRICS and Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summits as a ‘sellout’, and said that the Prime Minister Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has made a 180 degree turn on its position on terror.

“In the morning, I characterized the meeting as a failure, but when the joint statement came out it proved to be sellout. BJP has done a 180 degree turn on its position on terror,” Tewari told ANI here.

“For 10 years, BJP said talks and terror can’t go hand in hand, today they have agreed to talk about terror,” he added.

Earlier today, the Foreign Secretaries of India and Pakistan, S Jaishankar and Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry, issued a joint statement in Ufa, after a bilateral meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and its Paskitani counterpart Nawaz Sharif. (ANI)
