Congress on Thusday came down heavily on Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif saying the "conspiratorial omission" of Uri attacks in his UN General Assembly address is an admission of public guilt and asked Pakistan to abandon terrorism as its state policy.
All India Congress Committee (AICC) chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala also said that Sharif at the UNGA once again betrayed Pakistan’s mindless obsession with Kashmir at UNGA and its diabolical designs will never succeed.
"A guilty conscious needs no accuser, Sharif. Isn’t conspiratorial omission of Uri Attacks at UNGA an admission of public guilt?
"Pak must abandon ‘terrorism’ as its ‘state policy’. Mr Sharif, isn’t that expectation reasonable for a sustainable dialogue?," he said on Twitter.
Taking on the Pakistani leader over his doublespeak, Surjewala said, "Hafiz Saeed, Masood Azhar, Dawood (Ibrahim) operate in Pakistan under your tutelage yet Sharif has audacity to speak on terrorism."
The Congress leader told Sharif that talks are not a favour to India either, saying that "Pakistan’s unending stubborn belligerence has denied opportunities to our countries".
Surjewala also tweeted, "PM Sharif once again betrayed Pakistan’s mindless obsession with Kashmir at UNGA. Pak’s diabolical designs will never succeed."
Speaking at the UN General Assembly yesterday, Sharif raked up the Kashmir issue and glorified slain Hizbul commander Burhan Wani.
