New Delhi, Jul 23: Reacting to reports that Prime Minister Narendra Modi asked US president Donald Trump to mediate between India and Pakistan on Kashmir, Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday accused the PM of betraying India’s interests and the 1972 Shimla agreement.
Rahul Gandhi said the PM must tell the country what transpired between him and US President Donald Trump. 'President Trump says PM Modi asked him to mediate between India & Pakistan on Kashmir! If true, PM Modi has betrayed India’s interests & 1972 Shimla Agreement. A weak Foreign Ministry denial won’t do. PM must tell the nation what transpired in the meeting between him & @POTUS,' he said in a tweet.
The reports said during a meeting with Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan at the White House, US President Donald Trump offered to be the “mediator” on the Kashmir issue and even said he has received a request to do so from Modi during a recent meeting with him. The issue rocked both houses of Parliament with the opposition demanding a statement from the PM on the issue. (UNI)
