Fielding questions on a wide range of issues, the former Prime Minister alleged that there has been huge "inconsistency" in Modi government's policy on Kashmir issue. "I am not aware of any achievement of the Modi government on Kashmir. It has been moved from one extreme to another. One day they have a harsh policy towards people and on the other hand, he has gone to Lahore for dinner with Nawaz Shariff," Dr Singh said, adding - such inconsistency "has hurt" national security. ".....There is no doubt in my mind (on this inconsistent policy)," he said.
To a question on Prime Minister Modi's foreign policy endeavors, former Prime Minister said,"While we do not want to divide the country based on foreign policy matters.....but there are instances wherein the government has taken some steps and these were not necessarily in the interest of our country".Dr Singh also said to conceive dreams that India will turn into a developed country in 'five years' is like a "pipe-dream". "It is unlikely to cross all barriers in five years and emerge as a developed country," the former Prime Minister said.(UNI)
