Gorakhpur, Nov. 13 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Rajnath Singh on Sunday criticised Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh for calling his Pakistani counterpart Yousuf Raza Gilani as 'a man of peace'
"I strongly think that the Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, should take back his friendly comments on his Pakistani counterpart, the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Yousuf Raza Gilani," Singh told mediapersons here.
Dr. Manmohan Singh had described his Pakistani counterpart Gilani as a 'man of peace' after their meeting in Maldives on the sidelines of the 17th SAARC Summit.
Rajnath Singh further lashed out at Pakistan terming it as a hub of militancy. He said that Pakistan is teaming up with China and building bunkers in Pakistan-administered-Kashmir, as part of its ill intentions towards India. We should not support a country like Pakistan that shelters militants and also has several training camps for them. Pakistan is a hub of militancy and the entire world knows it. The world also knows its intentions towards India that are not friendly," said Singh.
"Pakistan is also teaming up with China in Pakistan-administered-Kashmir and is building bunkers and camps for them. This is indicative of its ill intentions. The Indian Prime Minister (Manmohan Singh) has termed the Pakistani Prime Minister (Yousuf Raza Gilani) as a 'man of peace'," he added. elations between the nuclear-armed rivals went into a diplomatic freeze after India blamed Pakistan-based militants for the Mumbai attacks in November 2008.
