NEW DELHI, Dec 26: Prime Minister rendra Modi’s surprise visit to Pakistan has revived the peace process between the two tions and was done in an “extraordiry” manner, the BJP said on Saturday.

“The party expresses its deep admiration for the prime minister for his courage, vision, imagition and skill in creating a transformative moment in the sub-continent,” Bharatiya Jata Party spokesperson M.J. Akbar told reporters at a press conference.

“The peace process between the two tions has been revived and the manner in which the prime minister revived it is quite extraordiry,” he added.

He said Modi’s visit has created hope that there will be one happy consequence, and if all goes well, the prime minister will undertake a visit to Pakistan next year for the Saarc summit.

“The extraordiry and positive public response to these developments tells it own story... democratic leaders understand the heartbeat of the public,” he said.

Akbar, however, said a new chapter in India-Pakistan relations cannot be written by a single author but by two authors and who read from the same page.

“We extend our warmest appreciation and applause for the prime minister’s extraordiry initiative for his great vision not only for Indo-Pak relations but for all Saarc tions for his desire to see a comity of tions within the Saarc umbrella where leaders can call upon each other without abandoning formalities but with a degree also of unprecedented formality,” he said.

Akbar said all have welcomed this development, except one or two political parties. (IANS)
