Last night, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had received Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, popularly known as MBS, from the airport. A day after concluding his tour in Pakistan, the Crown Prince travelled to India on a less than 30-hour visit.
Congress’s chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala Wednesday asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi whether a “grand welcome” of Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who had praised Pakistan’s “anti-terror” efforts, was his way of remembering the CRPF jawans killed in the Pulwama attack.
“National interests v/s Modiji’s ‘hugplomacy’ breaking protocol, a grand welcome to those who pledged USD 20 billion to Pakistan and praised Pakistan’s ‘anti-terror’ efforts. Is it ur way of remembering martyrs of Pulwama,” Surjewala took to Twitter and asked in a video.Surjewala urged Modi to “show courage” and ask MSB to retract his joint statement with Pakistan, which virtually rejects India’s demand for declaring Maulana Masood Azhar as an international terrorist.
