Don't drag us into your domestic politics: Pak to India

Pakistan on Monday dubbed as "baseless and irresponsible" attempts by Indian politicians to drag it into India's domestic politics, a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi laimed Pakistani interference in the Gujarat Assembly election.

Modi on Sunday claimed at an election rally that there was an attempt by Pakistan to interfere in the Gujarat polls, the second phase of which is scheduled for December 14.

Reacting to Modi's comments, Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesman Mohammad Faisal tweeted, "India should stop dragging Pakistan into its electoral debate and win victories on (its) own strength rather than fabricated conspiracies, which are utterly baseless and irresponsible".

The prime minister also raised questions about an appeal by former director general (DG) of the Pakistan Army Sardar Arshad Rafiq for making senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel chief minister of Gujarat.

Modi also claimed that Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar had held a meeting at his house which was attended by former prime minister Manmohan Singh, a former Indian vice president, Pakistan's high commissioner in India and a former Pakistani foreign minister.
