It also asked the Prime Minister if he would show the courage to ensure that the trial of 26/11 is either held under the guidance of international agencies or they are handed over to India.
"This is something that then UPA Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his government had categorically stated before the entire world community which led to definite sanctions against Pakistan," said Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala.
"Modi, who goes uninvited to have 'dawats' at the house of same Nawaz Sharif, needs to answer, that in light of this categorical admission by former Pakistani Prime Minister... will this government take action to ensure that Pakistan is declared a terrorist state among the world community, leading to consequent civil, military and economic sanctions on Pakistan," he added.
Nawaz Sharif defended his comments on terror group Lashkar-e -Tayiba's role in the attacks that killed 166 people in Mumbai in 2008. In an interview to a Pakistani newspaper, Mr Sharif on Sunday had said, terror groups are active in Pakistan and questioned the policy to allow the "non-state actors" to cross the border and "kill" people in Mumbai. He had also questioned why the 26/11 probe was not concluded.
