THIRUVANANTHAPURAM Oct 1: Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj’s address at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) has “disappointed” Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, who feels that all the Pakistan bashing in New York was aimed at the BJP voters.
His other objection to her speech on Saturday was that it didn’t portray India in a good light.
She emphasised that India wants peace and after Imran Khan came to power in Pakistan, their request for talks was accepted. “But within hours, they killed three of our policemen in Kashmir,” she said.
Pakistan accuses India of rights violations, but terrorists are “bigger violators”, the External Affairs Minister said.
“Pakistan glorifies killers, refuses to see the blood of innocents, and then throws the dust of deceit on India to cover its own guilt,” she said.
She referred to the manner in which al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden was provided “safe haven” in Pakistan to allege its duplicity in fighting terror.
She signed off with a message to Pakistan that it was “heartening” that the world doesn’t believe that country anymore.
Pakistan dismissed her charges as “baseless” and accused India of choosing politics over peace.
