India has a weak PM: Rahul on Modi failing to raise H-1B visa issue with Trump


New Delhi:  In a sharp attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his failure to take up with US President Donald Trump the issue of H-1B visa and for the Government accepting the US referring to Kashmir as "India-administered Kashmir", Congress Vice-president Rahul Gandhi today termed him as a "weak PM". In a tweet, Rahul also described the US Government's use of the term 'India-administered Kashmir' for Kashmir as another example that the PM was weak. 'India has a weak PM,'Rahul said in his tweet. He also posted on his twitter handle reports that 'H-1B did not figure in the Modi Trump talks' and 'MEA accepts US use of administered-Kashmir'. In its statement on June 26, designating Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) chief Syed Salahuddin a "global terrorist", the US referred to Kashmir as "India-administered Jammu and Kashmir". In response to a query whether India had taken up with the US the use of the term 'India-administered Jammu and Kashmir' in the State Department's notification designating Syed Salahuddin as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, the Official Spokesperson of the External affairs Minsitry said that India’s position that the entire State of Jammu & Kashmir is an integral part of India is well known.
