Congress leader Rashid Alvi today backed Narendra Modi’s decision to invite heads of SAARC countries, including Pakistan premier Nawaz Sharif, for his swearing-in, saying dialouge is the only way forward to solve problems.
“This is a very good step taken by Narendra Modi to invite all heads of SAARC countries. This is a positive step but, at the same time, Modi should talk toughly to Nawaz Sharif regarding terrorism and Dawood Ibrahim,” Alvi, a former Rajya Sabha MP and a former spokesperson of the party, said.
The Congress leader said that the PM-designate should be very careful as the people of India do not want another Kargil.
