Islamabad: Former Pakistan premier Nawaz Sharif on Monday congratulated Prime Minister Narendra Modi on beginning his third term as Indian Prime Minister. His post came just hours after Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif sent 'felicitations' to PM Modi.
Shehbaz Sharif’s elder brother Nawaz Sharif, a three-time former premier and head of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), spoke of replacing hate with hope.
“My warm felicitations to Modi Ji (@narendramodi) on assuming office for the third time. Your party’s success in recent elections reflects the confidence of the people in your leadership. Let us replace hate with hope and seize the opportunity to shape the destiny of the two billion people of South Asia,” said Nawaz Sharif.
Notably, Nawaz Sharif had attended PM Modi’s first oath-taking ceremony in 2014. He was accompanied by his wife Kulsoom Nawaz and his son Hussain Nawaz as he arrived at the technical Air Force base in Palam.
Earlier today, Shehbaz Sharif shared a post on social media platform X, a day after Narendra Modi took oath as the PM of India for a record third term.
"Felicitations to @narendramodi on taking oath as the Prime Minister of India," Shehbaz wrote on X.
Sharif's "felicitations" come a week after Pakistan's Foreign Office spokesperson, Mumtaz Zahra Baloch, said in an official statement that it would be "premature" for the country to congratulate PM Modi. Responding to the Pakistan Prime Minister's message, PM Modi thanked him and for the "good wishes".
PM Modi took the oath for the third term in a row, days after the BJP-led NDA bagged 293 out of the 543 seats in the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections.

No Invitation To Pakistan

PM Modi's oath taking ceremony was attended by top leaders from India’s neighbourhood and the Indian Ocean region, including Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu, Nepal Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ and Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe, on Sunday graced the swearing-in ceremony of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Union council of ministers.
Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Mauritius Prime Minister Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, his Bhutanese counterpart Tshering Tobgay and Vice-President of Seychelles Ahmed Afif also attended the glittering ceremony held at the Rashtrapati Bhavan.
However, Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif was not among the invitees to the swearing-in ceremony held in New Delhi. The Ministry of External Affairs sent invitations to various SouthEast nations including Maldives, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Nepal but it did not pass the same call to its immediate neighbour - Pakistan.
