In one of his tweets, Ahmad asked whether Sharif was coming to India alone or underworld don Dawood Ibrahim was accompanying him. In another tweet, Ahmad said the nation should ensure that no Biriyani was served during Sharif's visit.

Narendra Modi invites Pakistan's PM Nawaz Shareef in the swearing-in ceremony. Nation should be on guard that no Biriyani is served.— Shakeel Ahmad (@Ahmad_Shakeel) May 23, 2014
One may recall here that Modi launched attacks on the previous UPA government's initiative of having friendly talks with a former Pakistani premier while troops of that country were attacking Indian border posts and also mercilessly killed its soldiers.
Last month, Modi took a sharp dig at the former Union home minister Sushilkumar Shinde for openly speaking about bringing back Dawood Ibrahim, one of India's most wanted men. Modi said these issues are not meant for open discussions and Shinde should have maintained a secrecy. [Read here]

Ahmad also said that there is no atmosphere for serious talks between India and Pakistan at the moment.
However, the Congress stood a divided house while reacting to the invitation given to Sharif.
