From remove Modi to best wishes for Rahul-Kejriwal, the ‘Pakistan’ factor in India’s elections

Bring us (Congress) back to power and remove them… During a panel discussion on Pakistan’s ‘Duniya TV’, Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had appealed to the neighbouring country to remove PM Modi on the issue of continuing dialogue between the two countries. Whatever the reason, Pakistan remains at the center of discussions in India’s elections. This time, Pakistan was discussed from its nuclear bomb and how much India should fear it to the repeated statements of a politician from the neighboring country. At different times in the seven-phase Lok Sabha election campaign, Chaudhary gave enough material to the BJP to raise the issue of Pakistani support behind the India block by wishing Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal. About a month ago, Chaudhary had shared a video of Rahul on his social media handle criticizing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP and captioned it: Rahul on fire.

The BJP wasted no time in reacting to this and said that the Congress’s alliance with Pakistan could not be more clear than this. Chaudhary Fawad Hussain, who served as Information and Broadcasting Minister in the Imran Khan cabinet, is seen constantly supporting Rahul Gandhi. BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya asked whether the Congress is planning to contest elections in Pakistan?

Soon after, Modi said at a rally in Gujarat that while Congress is dying here, Pakistan is crying. You must have come to know that a Pakistani leader is praying for Congress. Pakistan is desperate to make Shahzada (Rahul) the Prime Minister and we know that Congress is Pakistan’s disciple. The enemies of the country do not want a strong government in India. In a recent interview to IANS, the PM had said, “Why do people who have enmity with us praise some people… this should be investigated.” Several other BJP leaders asked Choudhary to focus on Pakistan’s problems instead.

As Delhi voted on May 25, Choudhary again jumped into the India election fray, replying to Kejriwal’s post on Twitter about voting with his family: May peace and harmony defeat the forces of hatred and extremism. Kejriwal, however, realising the gravity of the situation, wasted no time in reacting and replied: “Choudhary sahab, I and the people of my country are fully capable of handling our own issues. Your tweet is not needed. The situation in Pakistan is very bad right now. Take care of your country. India will not tolerate interference from the biggest sponsors of terrorism.” But Choudhary came back on Tuesday and told IANS that it was very important that Modi lose the election. Every Pakistani wants him to lose. Supporting the India bloc, he wished Rahul and Kejriwal as well as Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee.
