BJP slams PM for calling Gilani 'man of peace'

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Nov 10 (IANS): Labelling the meeting between the prime ministers of India and Pakistan "disastrous", the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Thursday said Manmohan Singh's comment that Yousuf Raza Gilani was a man of peace was ridiculous.

"PM's statement that Gilani is a man of peace is ridiculous. This meet has been disastrous like Sharm-el-Sheikh," former external affairs minister and BJP leader Yashwant Sinha told a TV channel.

He said the whole world had been saying that the Indian embassy in Kabul had been attacked at the behest of Pakistani intelligence agency ISI but the prime minister continued talking to Pakistan and giving it certificates.

Describing Gilani as "man of peace", Manmohan Singh said in the Maldives that the dialogue process, which the two countries resumed early this year, had yielded positive results but stressed that more needed to be done.

The two prime ministers met in Addu atoll in the Maldives on the sidelines of the 17th SAARC summit.
