No logic in Cong’s demand for spl parl session: Naqvi
Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on Tuesday dismissed Congress’ demand for convening a special session of Parliament to declare Pakistan a terrorist state, saying there is “no logic in it” and asserted that India’s security is in safe hands with Narendra Modi at the helm of affairs.
On Congress’ criticism of External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj that she did not pitch for imposing economic sanctions on Pakistan during her address at the UNGA, he said the NDA government knows “what should be said” in the country’s interest better than the opposition party.
“We are ready for a discussion and debate on the matter in Parliament. But convening a special session to discuss the issue...There is no logic in it. There is no discussion on convening a special session at our level,” the Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs said after attending the annual conference of NMDFC.
Naqvi, also the Minister of State for Minority Affairs assured that India and its respect and security “are in safe hands” with Narendra Modi at the helm of country’s affairs.
