New Delhi : While Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his sympathy towards Pakistan which is suffering from flood disaster, the country’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif forgot the courtesy and used it for politics. He said that genocide is happening in Jammu and Kashmir and focused on winning the elections next year.
About 1,000 people lost their lives due to floods in Pakistan. Crops were severely damaged. There was a shortage of food. In this context, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted on Monday. He said that he was shocked to see the devastation caused by the floods in Pakistan. Condolence to the victims and condolence to the bereaved families. He hoped that normal conditions would be restored soon.
Pakistan’s Finance Minister Mifta Ismail told local media on Monday that his government would consider importing vegetables and food items from India to provide relief to people affected by the floods.
Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif spoke to international media on Tuesday. Will trade with India be restored? Are there opportunities to import food items and vegetables? When asked by reporters, Sharif said that there are no problems in doing business with India. But genocide is happening in India. He said that the rights of Kashmiris are being denied. They said that Article 370 of the Indian Constitution was canceled and Kashmir was forcibly annexed. But he said that he is ready to discuss with Prime Minister Modi. War is not worth it. The meager resources of both the countries should be used for poverty alleviation. He said that we cannot live peacefully without solving these problems. He said that politics should not be done at this time, but it is a fact that the rights of minorities are being oppressed in India. He said that there is a need for peace in the region and being neighbors is not what we want.
It is known that in August 2019, the central government repealed Article 370 and Article 35A. This made Jammu and Kashmir into two Union Territories. Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh were formed.
