NEW DELHI (IANS) — The Congress on Wednesday questioned Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s move to personally receive Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who praised Pakistans “anti-terror” efforts and asked if it was Modis way of honouring the CRPF troopers killed by a suicide bomber in Kashmir.

Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala also asked if Modi will show courage to ask Saudi Arabia to undo their Joint Statement with Pakistan that has “virtually rejected” India’s demand for designating Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) chief Masood Azhar as a “global terrorist”.

“National interests versus Modiji’s ‘hugplomacy’ breaking protocol, grand welcome to those who pledged $20 billion to Pakistan and praised Pakistan’s ‘anti-terror’ efforts. Is it your way of remembering martyrs of Pulwama?” Surjewala said in a series of tweets.
