Before leaving for Delhi to attend Modi's swearing-in ceremony on Monday, May 26, Thackeray stated, "So far only India has taken initiative of forgetting the past and starting afresh. "
"Hence, it is difficult to trust Pakistan. But we trust Modi's leadership and hence we do not want to create hurdles for him. If Pakistan does not mend its ways, Modi will have to press the nuclear button," he added.
Reacting against Congress's criticism of his silence over Modi's invitation to Sharif, Thackeray added, "It is as if only Shiv Sena is concerned about Pakistan's involvement in terrorism activities in India and others have nothing to do with it."
"What is important is sentiments of the martyrs in India. Kargil happened during Sharif's tenure. The cries of their mothers, wives and sisters are bursting our eardrums. The manner in which Sarabjit was killed is not how a good neighbour behaves. Terrorism in Kashmir valley has not ended. Still now with Modi at the helm, it is expected that good days will come in respect of Pakistan and there will be peace in Kashmir and the entire country," Uddav said.

With Modi's invitation to Sharif and the latter's approval to attend the grand function in India, it is expected good days will come in respect of Pakistan and there will be peace in Kashmir and the entire country but maintained it was difficult to trust the neighbouring country.
Sharif arrived in India to attend the ceremony. It has been reported that both Modi and Sharif would hold bilateral talks on Tuesday. Sharif is also expected to meet President of India -- Pranab Mukherjee.
