Top ministers today slammed Pakistan Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto over his offensive personal attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi, calling him “mentally bankrupt and irresponsible”.
Union Minister Meenakshi Lekhi said the comments would have no impact on PM Modi’s image.
“The language used by the Foreign Minister of Pakistan shows that not only does he represent a bankrupt country, he is also mentally bankrupt,” said Meenakshi Lekhi.
In a highly objectionable comment, Bilawal Bhutto had said: “Osama bin Laden is dead, but the butcher of Gujarat lives.” He was reacting to India calling Pakistan the “epicentre of terrorism”.
“Responsibility does not come from one’s post, responsibility is a part of one’s character. Many people talk responsibly without any post and many talk irresponsibly despite holding posts,” the minister said.
“He is the representative of a failed state and is himself failed, so Pakistan is also failed. What can you expect from those who have a terror mindset?”
