While Congress plays politics, Shashi Tharoor comes out to defend PM Modi

"Maybe he didn't understand the issue or nobody has briefed him. It is impossible that Modi will ask anyone else because it is our clear policy that we do not want a third-party mediation," said Shashi Tharoor over Trump's claims

After US President Donald Trump’s controversial statement on Kashmir in the joint press briefing last night, some political leaders from the opposition and their media trolls have been busy in attacking PM Modi over it, without bothering to pause and notice that the MEA had rejected the claim immediately.

Congress has seen it as an opportunity to attack PM Modi. The party has now given an adjournment motion notice in the Lok Sabha over Trump’s remarks.

However, Congress MP from Thiruvananthapuram Shashi Tharoor, who was the MoS External Affairs in the UPA government had stated that he does not believe Trump’s statement and it is impossible that India’s PM will ever ask anyone for mediation in the Kashmir issue.

Speaking to ANI, Tharoor stated that Trump does not know what he is saying. He added. “Maybe he didn’t understand the issue or nobody has briefed him. It is impossible that Modi will ask anyone else because it is our clear policy that we do not want a third-party mediation. If we’ver to talk to Pakistan, we’ll do that directly”.

Trump’s statement has also drawn wide criticism in his own country. Many politicians have stated that Trump’s statement shows that he doesn’t have any idea about the issue between India and Pakistan and have asserted that India has been firm and clear on its policy for years.
