ISLAMABAD: Opposition PPP has placed an adjournment motion in the Senate on a statement made by Prime Minister Imran Khan regarding Indian elections, said Senator Sherry Rehman on Thursday.

Taking to Twitter, the PPP leader questioned the PM’s interview to foreign media in which he was quoted as saying that there there may be a better chance of peace talks with India and settle the Kashmir issue if Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s party BJP wins the general elections.

“Perhaps if the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party)….wins, some kind of settlement in Kashmir could be reached,” Khan told foreign journalists.

Khan was of the view that other India parties would be afraid of right-wing backlash in case of settlement on the Kashmir issue.

“Who was Modi’s Yar now,”: Sherry Rehman asked, referring to his past criticism about the PML-N government’s policy of dialogue with India .

“PPP places an adjournment motion on the shocking statement made by the PM for an Indian candidate on the eve of an election. Who is Modi’s Yaar now? After Modi’s aggressive posture on Pakistan and policy of state terrorism in Kashmir the entire nation is shaken by no clarification,” she tweeted.

The PPP, in the adjournment, described PM Khan’s remarks as both shocking and unprecedented. It demanded the House business should be adjourned to discuss the matter of urgent public importance.
