AICC spokesperson and party’s MLA from Abdasa, Shaktisinh Gohil, has questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi as to why did he not speak a word about his future dealings with Pakistan when film personalities like Karan Johar have made it clear that they would not hire Pakistani artists in their films in future. In a statement issued on Saturday, Gohil said that PM Modi had not made it clear whether he would not invite Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and not hug him as he did in the past. He also did not say anything about inviting Joint Investigation Team from Pakistan.

Gohil wanted PM Modi to ask BJP leaders to apologise to the Indian Army for commenting that the Army did not conduct any surgical strikes in the past while (retd) General Bikram Singh had stated that the Army had conducted surgical strikes in the past as well.

“Are utterances of BJP leaders not an insult to the Army? Is it not an insult of the Army to say that surgical strikes were because of RSS training?”, he asked. He said that PM was visiting Gujarat frequently now because of BJP’s poor performance in the last year’s panchayat and civic body polls, as the assembly elections were approaching fast.

“As BJP fears clear defeat in assembly elections, Modi has increased his visit to Gujarat. So, his visit to Gujarat is election-oriented,” remarked Gohil.
