The Twitter exchange between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and former Mumbai Congress chief Milind Deora not only intensified speculation on Tuesday about the political future of the latter but also brought into focus the discontent among a section of the younger leaders in the Congress. On Monday, Trump held a press conference with Imran Khan following a bilateral between the two leaders. "And the prime minister using that moment to exhort and raising that slogan on "Abki Bar Trump Sarkar" was better avoided", he said. The coalition spoke against human rights violations happening in the U.S. and in India.
"India's actions within its boundaries are causing discomfort to some people who are unable to manage their own country", said Modi at that event, referring to Pakistan. But they have to both want it.
"You are aware that on the situation in Jammu and Kashmir, we have engaged with several countries at different levels". I was there. I didn't know I was going to hear that statement.

Tensions between India and Pakistan reached a feverish pitch on August 5, when New Delhi unilaterally annexed occupied Kashmir, revoking a constitutional guarantee that gave a special status to the disputed territory.
Following Modi's speech, the Indian PM and President Trump left the stage walking hand-in-hand. "As soon as Trump met Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, he praised him and Pakistan", he added.
