‘PM Narendra Modi has betrayed country’s interests if Donald Trump’s claim on Kashmir mediation is true’: Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: If United States President Donald Trump’s claim that the Indian prime minister had asked him to mediate on the Kashmir issue is true, PM Narendra Modi had betrayed the interests of the country, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said on Tuesday.

Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi “must tell the nation what transpired” in his meeting with Donald Trump after the US president’s stunning claim that the Indian PM has asked him to mediate on the Kashmir issue.

Trump on Monday offered to help resolve the Kashmir issue between India and Pakistan in initial remarks with visiting Prime Minister Imran Khan. The US president said that Prime Minister Modi had made a similar request when they met a few weeks ago — a claim that was rejected by India.

President Trump says PM Modi asked him to mediate between India & Pakistan on Kashmir! If true, PM Modi has betrayed India’s interests & 1972 Shimla Agreement. A weak Foreign Ministry denial won’t do. PM must tell the nation what transpired in the meeting between him & @POTUS,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
