Delhi CM accuses PM Modi of shaming India in front of Pakistan

New Delhi: The BJP government has stabbed ‘Mother India’ in the back by allowing Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) inside the country to probe the Pathankot attack, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said yesterday.

"Even though BJP/RSS chants Bharat Mata Ki Jai, but by inviting ISI to India they have stabbed Mother India in the back," Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.

"It is very shameful. It is for the first time that any Prime Minister has insulted the country before Pakistan," Kejriwal mentioned in another tweet.

Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been protesting against allowing Pakistan’s JIT a role in the investigation on the ground that the ISI, a state actor, has long been the instigator of terrorism in India.

The BJP hit back at the Delhi CM for his criticism of the NDA government for allowing a Pak JIT to probe the Pathankot airbase attack, saying his remarks exposed his ‘lack of knowledge’.

Senior BJP leader MJ Akbar said, "Kejriwal has exposed his own lack of knowledge, his own ignorance of
the nuances of foreign policy and relationships with a neighbour with whom we have a complex history."

Double-speak by Pakistan JIT?

New Delhi: Pakistan media reports that the Pathankot terror attack was ‘stage-managed’ by India are seen here as ‘double-speak’ by Pakistan’s security establishment. The news report in daily ‘Pakistan Today’ quoted an unnamed JIT member to say that the attack was nothing but ‘vicious propaganda’ against Pakistan as Indian authorities did not have any evidence to back their claims. “The report in a Pakistan daily only shows that ISI and Pakistan Army were doing double-speak. India has provided irrefutable evidence,” a government source said.
