Mumbai: The Hyderabad MP and AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi in an interview on Tuesday, 20 August 2019, questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to call US President Donald Trump on Monday. The MP further showed his concerns about the anti-India rhetoric raised by certain leaders in the region.
AIMIM chief Owaisi said that Kashmir is a bilateral issue and there is no need for any international mediation and India has always been firm on its decision to not let any foreign forces to interfere. But the PMs call to the US president might threaten India’s long-run decision of keeping the issue bilateral.
In an interview with ANI, Owaisi said, “Since the very beginning, we have been saying that Kashmir is a bilateral issue. India has a very consistent stand on this. Then what was the need for PM Modi to call for US President Donald Trump & complain about it?”
Many Modi supporters took to twitter to justify the fact that it wasn’t the Indian PM Mr. Modi who called the US president but it was quite the opposite of it. On Monday the US president Donald Trump had called PM Modi and during that call, Modi had a talk with Trump about the rising terror issues in South Asia due to the Pakistani troops.
After the call to Indian PM, it was also reported that Donald Trump had later phone called the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and asked him to moderate the anti-India rhetoric.
