'Stop Embarrassing India On Indo-Pak Ties,' Congress Tells PM Modi

New Delhi:  The Congress today mounted a strident attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi over India's relationship with Pakistan and asked him to "stop embarrassing India", advocating a "wait and watch" policy regarding talks with the neighbouring country in the wake of Pathankot terror attack.

Alleging that the Modi government has mastered the art of taking "unauthorized U-turns", party spokesperson Kapil Sibal ridiculed its functioning saying the government was "not realizing that such u-turns only lead to accidents".

Taking potshots at the Prime Minister over his surprise visit to Lahore last month and other foreign policy steps, Mr Sibal said PM Modi is trying to "make history without learning from history".

"Once bitten twice shy is an age-old adage. We have been bitten not once but several times and yet the immature handling of Pakistan has belittled the stature of the office Mr Modi holds. The mindless wooing of Pakistan is bound to result in betrayal," he said.

"The government has no cohesive Pakistan policy. It has failed to stop cross-border infiltrations, whose number has crossed over a thousand since this government came to power," Mr Sibal said.

Recalling that PM Modi met his Pakistani counterpart in Ufa, in Paris and a third time in Lahore as a willing invitee to Nawaz Sharif's birthday and family wedding, the Congress spokesperson said,"acceptance of such an informal invitation without any preparatory homework is unbecoming of a Prime Minister, who has exposed himself to ridicule after yet another betrayal by Pakistan at Pathankot. "

"Modi's uncharacteristic surprises often end up embarrassing the nation. We would like to know, what the country has gained from the meeting of NSAs at Bangkok and Modi's immature decision to drop-in at Lahore on his way back from Kabul," he said.
