Mumbai [India], Sept. 26 (ANI): The Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on Monday dared Prime Minister Narendra Modi to act against Pakistan from New Delhi and not just speak about doing so from Kozhikode.

NCP leader Majeed Memon told ANI that sensitive matters like Pakistan cannot be proclaimed at rallies where the Prime Minister is promoting his Bharatiya Janata Party.

"It was a political rally, it was not a government function. Particularly, a sensitive matter of national security, national interest like taking revenge with regard to avenging the Uri terrorist attack by Pakistan are very secretive and sensitive matters. They cannot be proclaimed like this in a rally where you are promoting your political party," he added.

Memon said Prime Minister Modi ought to have acted as a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader in the rally in Kozhikode and not as the Prime Minister of India.

"He ought not to have revealed what the nation wants to do because that would be something classified and secretive. If you have to do anything, don't make noise about it. Do it from New Delhi and don't speak at Kozhikode," he added.

Launching a scathing attack on Pakistan, Prime Minister Modi on Saturday said in Kozhikode, Kerala, that India would never forget the Uri terror attack and would make all efforts to isolate Islamabad globally.

Prime Minister Modi said the people of Pakistan should ask their leaders that India and Islamabad got freedom in the same year, but India exports software and our country is exporting terrorists.

He also challenged Pakistan that if it wants war it should fight against poverty and other evils in its society.

Last Sunday, a militant attack on an army base in Uri, Jammu and Kashmir, claimed the lives of eighteen soldiers.

While 17 soldiers died on Sunday, the army confirmed that one more critically injured soldier succumbed to his injuries on Thursday, pushing the death toll to 18. (ANI)
