Congress leaders were irked by Modi’s surprised visit and dubbed it as an ‘adventure which will cause great harm to Indias National Security’.
Modi’s visit in Pakistan will definitely bring smile on the face of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, as he always wanted to go to Pakistan to start a conversation between two nations. Some say that the party leadership in Congress did not allowed Manmohan Singh to go there.
In 2011 Singh went to Kabul, but in his ten years of tenure he was never able to visit Pakistan.
In 2007 Manmohan Singh, while addressing a crowd in Amritsar said, “I dream of a day, while retaining our respective national identities, one can have a breakfast in Amritsar, lunch in Lahore and dinner in Kabul. That is how my forefather lived. That is how I want our grandchildren to live”.
Today, Modi was able to achieve what Manmohan Singh and many other Prime Ministers of India were not able to achieve. Read Also: (Narendra Modi visits Nawaz Sharif’s home, attends his grand-daughter’s wedding)
