Appearing unimpressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi vitriolic attack against Pakistan for "exporting terrorism", the CPI-M on Saturday said the BJP-led central government lacked concrete policies to deal with the Pakistan and Kashmir issues."The Prime Minister believes only in rhetoric, we have seen and heard him saying these things during the 2014 Lok Sabha polls and are hearing it again. It seems Modi believes he is still in the opposition because we have heard only words... where is the action?" Communist Party of India-Marxist poliburo member Mohammad Salim told IANS. Addressing a party rally in Kerala's Kozhikode, Modi squarely targetted Pakistan for Uri terror attack in which 18 soldiers were killed and asserted endeavours will be taken to isolate Pakistan globally for exporting terror. But Salim questioned the efficacy.
"Post the Pathankot attack we have seen similar posturing by the Modi government and now after the Uri attack, they are once again doing the same. Does this government have any concrete policy regarding Pakistan and Kashmir?" asked Salim referring to the Sunday attack in Kashmir and the attack on the Indian Air Force base in Pathankot in Punjab earlier in the year. "Only words will not suffice, the government has to come out with definitive plans and policies regarding Pakistan and Kashmir. But unfortunately we have not seen anything like that from this government," he added.
