Where is the ‘change’ on Pak policy: Shiv Sena asks PM Modi

Mumbai : The Shiv Sena on Wednesday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre for going ‘soft’ on Pakistan and said that the change for which the BJP was voted to power was not visible.

“People then voted for a change, they believed that something drastic would happen, they thought that some firm decisions, some firm actions would be taken against Pakistan,” Shiv Sena leader Manisha Kayande told ANI.

“Those who claimed to teach Pakistan a lesson, why are they going soft. People voted for a change and the change is not visible,” she added.

Kayande also lashed out at Prime Minister Modi for making an unscheduled visit to Pakistan last month, saying that the BJP had given a reason for Congress to attack them by inappropriately handling relations with Pakistan.

Earlier, the Shiv Sena had alleged that Prime Minister Modi’s ‘chai’ (tea) with his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif cost the nation seven martyrs.

Meanwhile, the Congress has accused NDA government of not being able to manage relations with Pakistan in a proper manner, adding that terrorist activities in the country had risen whenever BJP came to power at the Centre.

The operation against the terrorists at the Pathankot air base entered its fifth day today as security forces continue to carry out combing operations to smoke out any remaining terrorist. (ANI)
