BJP general secretary Ram Madhav has advised Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan it would be better if the later keeps off from Indian elections. In an interview, he asserted that who will be the prime minister of India will be decided by the people of India.
“We are wise enough; we don’t need advisers from across the border. When we come back to power, we know how to deal with our neighbours. We don’t need advisers or suggestions from across the border,” he added.
It may be recalled that earlier in an interview, Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had said that she believed Khan’s statement on peace talks between the neighbours and resolution to the Kashmir issue would be a possibility if BJP is voted back to power was a ploy by the Congress to oust PM Modi-led government.
Earlier, Khan had reportedly said that “there might be a better chance of peace talks with India if Prime Minister Narendra Modi wins the upcoming elections”.
Meanwhile, responding to a question on whether there is a deliberate attempt to politicise the country`s armed forces, Madhav said, “We are doing so. It is the Opposition which is trying to gain political or electoral mileage by invoking the Balakot issue and raising doubts about our Army’s actions”, he added.
The BJP leader accused that they (opposition) are not questioning the government but the very credentials of the Army itself. Lashing out at former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti for opposing the candidature of Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur, the BJP general secretary said the PDP chief was only “concerned about terrorists and not the citizens of the country”.
