BJP demands clarification from Prime Minister over Tharoor's 'interlocutor' remarks

By Super Admin

New Delhi, Feb.28 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party has also demanded a clarification from Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on his colleague Mr. Tharoor's remarks.

Interacting with the mediapersons here, BJP spokesperson Ravishankar Prasad on Sunday condemned the Union Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor's statement saying "Saudi Arabia could be an interlocutor between India and Pakistan" and described it as "utterly irresponsible".

"Tharoor's comment is utterly irresponsible and we thoroughly condemn it," said Prasad.

Prasad also said that the BJP will demand for a clarification from Singh in the parliament.

"Has the statement been made with the consent of the prime minister? Is this a trial balloon?" Prasad questioned.

"Since the time of first Prime Minister of the country Jawaharlal Nehru, either there have been no talks with Pakistan or the talks were bilateral," he added.

"There has been no third party mediation. Tharoor's remarks are an insult to India's sovereignty," Prasad said. (ANI)
