FO decries BJP's anti-Pakistan tirade in election rallies
ISLAMABAD - Foreign Office denounced on Sunday anti-Pakistan tirade run by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) currently ruling India in its election rallies.
Apparently, the BJP is busy in hurling false allegations at Pakistan amid the election going to be held in Haryana and Maharashtra on October 21 just to divert the public attention from real issues plaguing the society.
The focus of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led party in the whole election campaign, as usual, remained on Pakistan with a baseless tirade.
However, the foreign office has rejected all the allegations in a statement and said: "The anti-Pakistan tirade of the BJP leadership has continued as the electoral process in the Indian States of Haryana and Maharashtra advanced".
It highlighted, "In successive election rallies in recent days, Pakistan has been invoked repeatedly".
"Statements have been made regurgitating baseless allegations of Pakistan’s support to terrorism and drug smuggling, threatening stemming the flow of river water to Pakistan , and taking credit for Pakistan’s historic decision of opening of Kartarpur Corridor".
"We categorically reject these allegations and threats as well as distortion of history and facts," read the official statement.
A leader of the Indian National Congress, earlier today, hit out at the BJP and said that under the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, a "surgical strike" always happens just before the elections.
His comments come hours after India resorted to unprovoked firing along the LOC targetting the common people.
