Pakistani parliament echoes with ‘Modi, Modi’ chant

The Balochistan MPs raised slogans hailing Prime Minister Narendra Modi when Pakistan's Minister was speaking on boycotting French products

In a major embarrassment for the Imran Khan government, the Pakistani parliament reverberated with ‘Modi, Modi’ chants, forcing country’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi to lash out in anger.

Balochistan MPs raised slogans, hailing Indian Prime Minister when Pakistani minister was speaking on boycotting French products in the National on 28 October. They raised Azadi slogans in the parliament.

There is growing anger towards Pakistan Prime Minister Khan who has been accused of COVID-19 mismanagement and slapping the opposition leaders with false legal cases.

As the Pakistani foreign minister began to speak on the resolution and talking about the Balochistan , the parliament reverberated with slogans of ‘azadi‘. Opposition members disrupted his speech repeatedly. Pointing at PML(N)’s Khawaja Asif, the foreign minister said it appeared to him that Indian Prime Minister Modi’s “spirit has been transferred into him”.

Qureshi accused the opposition of peddling “’s narrative” and making national institutions “controversial”. “You should be ashamed that slogans for Balochistan’s independence were raised from your platform,” he said, addressing the opposition benches.

Foreign Minister said for God’s sake let Abhinandan go, India’s about to attack Pakistan at 9 PM”, Sadiq recounted the events of the important meeting.
