PM Imran calls Israeli, Indian leaders out on 'moral bankruptcy'

Rahul Gandhi

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and chief of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Amit Shah, display copies of their party's election manifesto for the April/May general election in New Delhi, India, April 8, 2019.

The Congress had dubbed the BJP's election manifesto a "Jhansa Patra" (deception document) and a "bubble of lies" on Monday and said it would have been better had the saffron party issued a "maafinama" instead.

The BJP's pledge this week to propose stripping decades-old special rights from the people of Jammu and Kashmir, which prevent outsiders from buying property in the state, was a major concern, though it could also be electioneering, Khan said.

Earlier, Imran Khan took to Twitter to criticise the Indian government for fuelling war hysteria with Pakistan after the mid-February incident, when more than 40 Indian soldiers were killed in a terrorist attack in the Pulwama district of Kashmir.

"In the last five years, we have made all necessary efforts to ensure peace in Jammu and Kashmir through decisive actions and a firm policy", it said in the manifesto.

"At least one point in BJP's manifesto reflects their true intentions", the party said in a tweet with the hashtag "BJP Jumla Manifesto".

Kirstjen Nielsen out as Trump homeland security secretary
A senior White House official told Axios's Jonathan Swan that Trump wasn't satisfied with Nielsen, and asked for her resignation. CBS News reported that it was not clear whether Kirstjen meant to resign voluntarily or chose to step down under the pressure.

"The BJP Manifesto was created in a closed room".

The BJP also promises to legislate a bill to prohibit and eliminate practices such as Triple Talaq and Nikah Halala.

This led the head of the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen political party to tell Reuters Muslims had "never felt so marginalised in the independent history of India".

Modi was referring to National Conference leader Omar Abdullah's remark in this connection. "They are wrong. We will fight against it".

Voting in the general election begins on Thursday, but with about 900 million eligible voters, will be spread across several weeks, with ballots counted on May 23.

Imran Khan said that if the next Indian government were led by the opposition Congress party, it might be too scared to seek a settlement with Pakistan over Kashmir, fearing a backlash from the right wing. It will also work to cut tax and boost credit to small businesses to 1 trillion rupees ($14.4 billion) by 2024.
