Pakistan using same language as Congress' manifesto: PM Modi

Pakistan using same language as Congress' manifesto: PM Modi

The Commission has sought a report from the Chief Election Officer of Maharashtra, where the Prime Minister was speaking.

The Congress manifesto has also offered a softer state in contrast with Mr. Modi's recurring theme of hard power as a signature achievement of his tenure.

"Perhaps if the BJP - a right-wing party - wins, some kind of settlement on Kashmir could be reached", the country's premier said.

This was despite the massive alienation that Muslims in Kashmir and Muslims, in general, were facing in Modi's India, said prime minister Khan.

"To kill terrorists right in their dens is policy of New India", he said.

Groups of Hindu nationalists are increasingly carrying out attacks against Muslims to protect revered cattle - known as "cow vigilante mobs" - killing 24 people since 2010.

Khan said Indian Muslims he knew who many years ago had been happy about their situation in India were now very anxious by extreme Hindu nationalism.

Prime Minister Imran Khan took to Twitter on Tuesday to take a swipe at Indian and Israeli leaders for what he said going against global laws, United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and the constitution of their own countries just to win election. Those to be dismantled include groups involved in Kashmir.

Slamming Congress-NCP alliance for backing separate PM for Jammu and Kashmir, Modi said, "The country has no expectations with Congress party but Sharad sahab you!"

Pakistan responded by sending war planes into Indian Kashmir the next day.

Last month, the Election Commission had said that the armed forces can not be dragged into poll campaign after opposition complaints that the BJP was referring to the Pulwama terror attack and the Balakot air strikes while canvassing for votes.

Pakistan responded with air strikes of its own.

Pollsters say Modi and the BJP's re-election bid got a boost from a wave of patriotism after the suicide bomb attack and the Indian government's response. As the Indian Air Force engaged the Pakistani jets, the PAF shot down two Indian warplanes ─ one of which crashed in Azad Jammu and Kashmir ─ and captured an Indian pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan.

An apparent goof up in the document of the BJP's manifesto has the Congress pointing out the "true intentions" of the party on the issue of the safety for women. The result is not due until May 23. India described the claim as irresponsible.
