【Islamabad】Islamabad on the 11th of December said Indian leaders should not drag Pakistan into their politics during Gujarat poll campaign.
“India should stop dragging Pakistan into its electoral debate and win victories on own strength rather than fabricated conspiracies, which are utterly baseless and irresponsible,” Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal said on Twitter.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the 10th of December claimed at an election rally that there was an attempt by Pakistan to interfere in the Gujarat polls. Mr. Modi also alleged that suspended Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had held a meeting at his house with former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, a former Vice-President, Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India, and a former Pakistan foreign minister.
The Congress has termed Mr. Modi's allegations “baseless”. “Holding the country’s topmost post, Modiji is making baseless allegations. Modiji is worried, dejected, angry. Such a statement has no truth or fact, and is based on lies. Such a behaviour is unbecoming of a prime minister,” Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala told reporters on Sunday.
